Grist.org seeks an enterprising, sharp-witted, D.C.-based reporter to track and break environmental news in the political and policy arenas. We are seeking to hire an outstanding candidate as soon as possible.
Grist’s political reporter will combine the best of the old and new media. From the old media: a dedication to accuracy, double-checking facts, and good old-fashioned shoe-leather tenacity. From the new media: a strong voice and perspective, a willingness to buck conventional wisdom, an aptitude with multimedia formats, and a wizardly mastery of internet data mining. We want to break news and make noise; this reporter’s byline will be out in front of that effort.
