Huffington Post Puts Internship Up For Sale

huffpo.jpgCan this be true?

Our collegeaues at MediaJobsDaily have a story about a charity auction selling a two- or three-month internship at the Huffington Post. The current bid is $13,000 but if you’re interested you’ll have to bid at least $15,500. The money raised will go to the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.

As if journalists — especially interns — weren’t broke enough to begin with! We’d love to meet the lucky person (and his/her parents/trust fund) who wins this gig. Will the buyer actually work for HuffPo or will someone with deep pockets gift it to a lucky relative or friend?
