Don't Forget Berkeley

Our current crop of elite journalists* are unable to perceive anything outside the world of elite families who have elite kids who go to elite schools and then elite colleges and proceed to elite unpaid internships at which point they inherit their parents' journalism and publishing jobs as Roderick Spode said they should. Is this worse than it used to be? Is it worse than it was 15 years ago?

*Of course not true of all of them, but seems to be common.
