AP Prez Curley On Interns: ‘We Must Focus Resources On Getting Projects Accomplished’

That’s what AP president and CEO Rob Curley told Rhonda LeValdo, president of the Native American Journalists Association, in response to an e-mail from her asking the AP to reconsider its reconsideration of its famous internship program.

Curley’s response, which read a full 15 words long, makes the “reconsideration” sound like an all-out cancellation.

AP spokesman Paul Colford wouldn’t confirm to Richard Prince, who has been following the story, that a meeting to select next year’s interns was still scheduled for Dec. 2.

“I have nothing further on this at the moment. Happy Thanksgiving,” Colford told Prince.
