Press Freedom Correspondent at Columbia Journalism Review

Press Freedom Correspondent at Columbia Journalism Review - A substantial new focus of the project this year is press freedom, and CJR is seeking a correspondent to lead coverage of this issue. The press freedom correspondent will not have a regional portfolio, but will report on news events and emerging stories as they relate to journalists working for local and state-level media organizations. Story subjects may include access to public records, gag orders, prior restraint cases, legal battles over drone journalism, and more, but this is not a Snowden/NSA/encryption beat. Responsibilities include writing three posts per month for publication on CJR.org, working in partnership with the project’s regional correspondents as a resource and occasional co-author, and appearing in other media outlets to discuss the project’s work.

If you're a candidate with demonstrated reporting skills, a base of knowledge in the legal issues surrounding this beat, and energy and enthusiasm for the project’s mission, then click on over to the complete listing for more information on requirements and how to apply.
