Our editors and reporters are responsible for writing, assigning and editing stories, and for working to keep the site humming along on a day to day basis.
Requirements: You should have a clear and in-depth knowledge of both the world of politics and the opinion media landscape, including major cable and broadcast networks, leading columnist and general thought-leaders. You should already have a curated Twitter feed that includes major media players and be familiar with leading news personalities, and more generally with sensibilities of each one. Ideally, you already have editorial experience, including original reporting, but more importantly you have an insatiable hunger to cover the hyperbolic and, at times, absurd declarations of America’s leading opiniotainers. You should be prepared to write 8 posts per day with a strong point of view, but ideally with opinions that fall beyond the echo chamber of talking points that one sees in partisan blogs. You should have a clear understanding of how Facebook, Twitter, user-generated content, and viral videos are shaping opinion media and television journalism. The idea of working in a fast-paced environment under quick deadline pressure should excite you and give you a thrill up your leg. You should get the “thrill up your leg” joke from the previous sentence.
