CNN challenges charges that most internships are abusive, reporting many are from teens

CNN New Day is throwing a monkey wrench into the ongoing debate about employment internships, saying that most of them are filled by college freshmen and sophomores, not by seniors, and often earn academic credit.  It says there is still a lot of competition about the under-21 set for internships.

Will the recent court ruling against Fox in an internship case change this?  Probably not, at least it seems from CNN.
The story didn’t seem to be online yet.  Watch for it.  Ross Perlin still has his challengers. 

Update: June 24

Yahoo! Finance has a story on the Court opinions on the legality of unpaid internships, by Camille Olson and Christopher Nelson, here.
