Join the next class of MRC Interns!

The MRC’s paid internship is the premier program for students looking to advance their career in conservative media. Interns work alongside industry professionals to play an active role in accomplishing the MRC’s mission: expose and neutralize left-wing media bias.

Internships are full-time, Monday through Friday, 9:00am-5:30pm. Our internship sessions are 12 weeks and run year-round.

For more information about the program, please contact MRC's Intern Coordinator Cari Lancaster at clancaster@mrc.org.

intern quote image

“The MRC helped me grow both personally and professionally because of the respect and responsibility interns receive and the encouraging learning environment we are in. To be able to manage social media accounts that influence the conservative movement and amplify voices the liberal media does not, was an honor and the opportunity of a lifetime.”

“I will always be grateful to CNSNews for giving me an opportunity, and helping launch my career. At a time during the abysmal Obama-Biden economy, with no clips to my name, CNS gave me a shot to go out, learn, and succeed. Giving young conservatives a chance has had an immeasurable impact in the fight to uphold America’s founding principles.”

“Know your enemy. That’s what working at the News Analysis Division (aka Newsbusters) at the Media Research Center will prepare you for when you join their fantastic internship program. The MRC, the Newsbusters division, and the CNS News wing, which I also dabbled with when MRCTV was part of that operation, is an excellent place to get your start in the ongoing fight against the Democrat-Media complex.”

“MRC was my first job in conservative journalism and provided me with the experience that convinced me I wanted to be a writer. MRC interns were engaged, wrote, edited, gathered facts, accrued interviews, racked up bylines, and learned the tricks of the trade. The dedication of the MRC's editors and staff to good journalism and covering all facets of an issue was inspiring and much fairer than anything you're likely to find in the so-called mainstream press.”
