Coronavirus News Monitor (Volunteer)

Location:
Blackpool, Auckland
Description:

Coronavirus News Monitor (Volunteer) *Note: The following is an opportunity for flexible, part time, volunteer work. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment.* This is a remote-from-home position. Are you, like all of us, obsessed with finding and keeping up with all the details on the coronavirus? Are you monitoring the news on a constant basis? Would you like to take what you know and brief a news organization on what you find? If so, we may be able to offer you the opportunity of a lifetime. Check out WhoWhatWhy.org. You’ll quickly see that we’re a unique news organization: not left-wing, not right-wing, and not consensus-seeking. We just want the truth — whatever it is.We have thought long and hard about what limits journalism’s expertise to effect positive change in the public interest, and we see 2 factors that dominate the landscape: (1) Commercial entities overly concerned with meeting financial goals and filling “eyeball” quotas — while keeping up with the rest of the pack, thereby ensuring a sameness and superficiality to the coverage (2) Ideologically driven outfits that cater to a specific mindset and dare not reveal things that would upset their readers — or force them to reconsider their values. At WhoWhatWhy, we go at each story with an open mind, boundless curiosity, and a willingness to dig deep and ask hard questions — even when we’re told not to. Nothing is going to stand in our way when it comes to discovering what is going on beneath the surface, and why. Call it naive to believe such fearlessness possible, but we think it’s the essence of true journalism.And because we’re straight to the point, we make clear that we’re looking for volunteers — skilled volunteers. Yes, we’re a nonprofit that wasn’t funded by a zillionaire. Yes, yes we decline to accept corporate ads. Yes, we have a tiny budget right now and simply don't have the expertise to pay many people very much. But we promise you this: If you’re a crackerjack editor, over time we’ll find a way to compensate you as we’re able. And in the meantime, you won’t be just “another editor.” We guarantee that your assignments will be meaningful, and you’ll be in the company of other fun, idealistic, motivated, decent people. As you will find out (if you didn’t know already) it feels pretty good to do the right thing. Bonus: an impressive array of readers — including many who are distinguished in their own fields; educators, scientists, thought leaders of all kinds -- will see the stories you touch.Interested? Qualified? Read on for details. And if you think you’re a good fit, tell us.
