We said it before, but it bears repeating: We have nothing against Charlsie. We thought she seemed kind of naive and sort of sweet, and we actually felt sort of sorry for her. Our reblogging of her site focused on her experiences and interactions with NS. (There was lots of other banal stuff from her own life; we didn’t care about it.) Someone suggested removing her last name from the posts on our site, and we’ve done that. We expected that she would remove her blog pretty soon after our post (or at least after Gawker’s post), and that’s probably best for her. To be fair, she did put her full name and her association with NS on her own site. A Google search of her name took you right to it.
Anyway, Charlsie’s own posts about her experiences with NS were quite revelatory, and they didn’t paint the NS girls (especially Julia) in the best light. I’m sure no future NS interns will be blogging about their experiences–you can bet Julia Allison Baugher will make damn sure of that.
Charlsie: Good luck with the rest of your college career. Don’t take journalism or media advice from Julia Allison. You don’t deserve to be schlepping Julia’s crap around town and begging for free stuff. That is not a real internship. Get a real one, work hard, improve your writing and you will do well. Good luck.
