Is Journalism A Dog’s Game?

An article causing controversy was written by a journalism student completing an internship at the Herald Sun. Although the story has no author attached and is attributed to’ anonymous’ it has since been revealed that the unhappy intern was Sasha Burden.

According to an article in Farrago, a Melbourne University magazine, Sasha accused the Herald Sun editors and journalists of being misogynistic, homophobic, sexist, elitist, arrogant and constantly making derogatory comments in their assessment of human interest stories.

The article is well worth a read if only for her conclusion about the future of traditional news organisations.
