Investigative Journalism Fellowship
Position Type
Full-time
Department:
CNS News

The Media Research Center, America’s premier media watchdog, is seeking a year-long fellow for its CNSNews Department. The fellow will be officially credentialed as a reporter in Washington, D.C., and spend most days when Congress is in session covering events on Capitol Hill and questioning members of Congress. During the course of the year, each fellow will pursue at least one in-depth investigative report seeking to break news—and have real impact--on the questionable activity of a federal agency or federal official. The fellow will also read an important historical or philosophical book each month and participate in a one-day seminar conducted at CNSNews.com by a conservative college professor who is an expert on the subject of that month’s reading assignment. 

 

The fellowship is paid, full-time, and is in-person. The fellowship begins 5/22/23 and will run through 5/22/24. Please send resume, cover letter, and three writing samples to Cari Lancaster at clancaster@mrc.org.

Entertainment TV Blogger
Position Type
Part-time
Department:
MRC Culture

The MRC On TV blog is looking for FAST, dependable part-time bloggers who can commit to watching and monitoring weekly prime time entertainment shows (think “Big Bang Theory” or “Grey’s Anatomy”) as they air for liberal bias and turn in posts with video clips on tight deadlines. MRC Culture is socially conservative and the On TV blog documents anti-traditional incidents or forays into liberal propagandizing on popular TV shows. We need bloggers who are informed about current entertainment TV (whether it’s broadcast, basic and premium cable, or streaming) and keep up to date with social media and news about shows they monitor. This is a great fit for someone who's going to be watching TV anyway and has opinions about what they see. You know the power Hollywood has in changing our culture. You know exactly what they’re trying to do and you want to identify, expose and stop it.

Interested applicants please apply here or email nkangadis@mrc.org with the following:

  1. Cover letter-type intro paragraph or two that includes: 
  2. Why you think you'd be a good fit for this job, how many hours a week you can work, what current shows or genres you're interested in monitoring, and suggestions for shows you've watched or heard about and why you think they should be covered for bias. Please also note any special subject expertise or experience (ex. military, guns, science, business/economics, education, religion, etc.)  
  3. Resume
  4. Contact info for an editor you have submitted pieces to in the past
  5. Writing sample that shows off your conservative blogging talents in a way that will fit in with the MRC brand - definitely send one you've done on a TV show or other cultural/celebrity moment, if possible.
