Pub Manual 101: Newsroom Rules. It's important for student journalists to feel a sense of ownership and belonging in the newsroom. It also is critical that the newsroom functions as a professional work environment. These rules will help.

Determining News Value. You can find news value in just about any topic. There is always something to report about. It's lazy reporters who don't bother developing these ideas.

I am entirely in favor of a couple/a few GOOD internships. But not more than 3 unless they’re legit. What I am a proponent: Student Media leadership experience (coupled with 2-3 impactful internships). The skills mentioned earlier come from being in charge. (4/)

Smaller” pubs need to demand more than just filled out resume. Problem is: so many part of cycle of handing out internships not as impactful as they oughta be. End game: internships NECESSARY, but better when balanced w/ to create well-rounded candidate (last)

I am certain NYT is incredibly diligent when hiring (and has built a base for itself to demand) that when students show “3, sometimes more” internships, they’re solid, worthwhile ones. But this changes as the hiring pub goes from NYT to local regional paper. (5/)

That all comes from student media. Small issue I have w/ the original post’s logic: more internships is NOT better if they’re not quality internships. And so many out there are just resume filler; exponentially more available internships today than 15 yrs ago (2/)
