Notice that in their hasty cutting-and-pasting, they missed an "at" before the newspaper name in the second one.
I doubt that typos will really land you an internship at a newspaper.
c'mon. Have you read the tripe that comes out of newspaper offices? They wouldn't know proper English if it hit them over the head with the Queen's own royal scepter. Our fledgling intern will fit right in, no doubt about it!
Ah, journalism internships. All you have to write is, "I am of the economic class that allows me to take a summer off interning at the [name of paper.]" (Most of them don't take people out of college, which excludes the possibility of working to save up for it. One of many reasons I left journalism for the relative meritocracy of science grad school.)
