Want to be a celebrity TV reporter?
Mainstream media it isn’t, but you have a shot at joining the news types covering the Republican National Convention if you apply for the job of “citizen reporter” with the nonprofit organization United Republic.
The group targets government corruption and has a lively website and TV channel. Its contributors include Amy Goodman and her radio show “Democracy Now!”, which presents itself as an alternative to a mainstream media that it sees as soft on corporate and government malfeasance.
The gig includes a trip to both the RNC Aug. 27-30 and the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte Sept. 3-6.
Here’s the online solicitation: “Tired of pols and pundits dodging questions on Big Money in politics? Join us at the 2012 Conventions and hold their feet to the fire - on national TV. Sign in, submit a video!”
You can apply for the job online.
