The White House in Washington, D.C., August 5, 2021 (Brent Buterbaugh/National Review)
We have just posted an ad for a White House correspondent. Some details:
National Review is looking for an energetic writer with a strong background in reporting and an analytic mind to serve in a newly created position aimed at holding the executive branch accountable. The ideal candidate should be able to deliver a regular mix of news and reported commentary that will break free of the normal constraints of Washington “access journalism.” Ultimately, this journalist will provide readers with an honest account of what is actually happening in the White House and within the broader administration, and produce coverage that others are forced to follow.
To be successful, the correspondent will have to be able to write both news and analysis, and to do so at varying lengths, and within a range of deadlines; to find creative ways to produce scoops in one of the most competitive beats in journalism; and to be able to shift gears between filing shorter posts on breaking news and writing broader pieces that could appear either online or in print.
Applicants should have a strong grasp of National Review’s mission, legacy, values, and an understanding of its readership.
More details on the position and instructions on how to apply, here.
