Want to Leave Journalism? Townhall is Hiring.

The right-wing website, Townhall.com is looking to hire a few people. According to Managing Editor Kevin Glass, they must be “young and hungry.” He tweeted, “Are you or do you know a young, hungry journalist? Townhall’s looking for someone to join our editorial team.”

He links to a description of four jobs that include a web editor and an editorial intern.

“Candidates must be motivated self-starters who have pet issues that they believe should be receiving more attention from both the mainstream and conservative press. If you’ve got a habit of asking yourself ‘Why isn’t this much bigger news?’, you might fit right in.”

The editorial internship is a good one if you want to leave journalism. In short, if you work here, you can leave journalism altogether and get a job at the White House or for Newt Gingrich.

“Past interns of Townhall.com have been hired at the White House, Newt Gingrich Communications, the Republican National Committee, The Heritage Foundation, the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation, and most recently, at Regnery Publishing. We have many past interns that have gone on to work for various Congressmen.”
