NOTE: This job listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!

Job Description

PPC is looking for citizen journalists who are motivated and interested in covering events in their community (school board meetings and other government processes, rallies and meetings both right and left, campaign-season forums and debates, etc.) and performing original research and transparency investigations on local and state issues and government/organization activities. In short: do-it-yourself news-gathering and investigative reporting, in areas of their own interest, expertise, and local connection.

It can be as simple as posting video from a city council meeting or an interview with a local official or candidate, or as wonky as filing CORA requests or sifting through government data for interesting and revealing nuggets of information.

We can train those who are interested but perhaps unsure of their skills. Our editorial focus is on free-market economics and small, constitutional, responsive, and transparent governance – anyone with good communication skills and motivation to promote these interests is encouraged to send us a sample of their work.
