A good, short editorial in yesterday’s New York Times outlining what two New York universities have done to protect their students in the wake of employment lawsuits, anger and protests over this recent pattern of exploitative unpaid internships— “recent,” because of the economic collapse of 2008 and subsequent high unemployment rate: Good Steps Against Unpaid Internships – NYTimes.com.
The editorial reminded me that

Fox. That is, one of Rupert Murdoch’s companies.
