Casper, WY – Terry Nepal, a 21 year old intern at The Daily Casper, has completely lost her faith in mankind just two weeks into her internship at the Casper newspaper. Despite entering her internship with high expectations of learning the skills necessary so that she could one day become a national journalist that would unbiasedly report the facts of a story so that an informed populace could make their own conclusions, she reportedly lost her faith after conducting her first “Man on the Street” interviews.
The problems for Nepal began last week, when editor Hank Unger gave her the assignment of asking citizens on the street for their opinion of the current immigration debate going on in Congress. With over 70% of the respondents’ answers showing a willing ignorance on the subject and intent on just sticking with biased talking points, Nepal quickly began to question what she was doing in life and whether there was really any helping this troubled population.
“No one wanted to share any formulated opinions. They just kept spouting close-minded racist remarks” Nepal said while holding back tears. “Even those in favor of a path to citizenship just spent the whole time accusing the others of wanting to create an all-white, Jesus loving police state. No one wanted to be open minded and discuss the problem logically.”
Even though she is in a moment of disillusionment about her career choice and the future of the country’s intellect, Unger sees a bright future for her.
“I’m proud of the kid. It took me three years in journalism before I lost all faith in humanity, and she picked it up in just two months. She’s got a bright future ahead of her. At this pace, I think she’s just a few years away from having her own cable news show in which she tells everyone what to think and labels all her opponents as enemies to America.”
