First Amendment Reporter

TheWrap is a news site focused on the entertainment business, media and pop culture. The subjects we cover — including journalism, films, TV shows and the internet — exist because of the First Amendment. From curbs on religious freedom to threats on the news media, we believe the First Amendment is under attack.

As our First Amendment reporter, you will cover every aspect of the First Amendment in America today. You should be endlessly fascinated by this subject, and passionately committed to reporting on freedom of speech, religion, and assembly. You will write about how the First Amendment functions and is challenged in the U.S. today, writing with wit, depth and flexibility. This beat could fuel dozens of stories a day, so you’ll need strong news instincts and judgment to prioritize which ones are the most important, as well as excellent time management to balance breaking news, short dispatches and investigative pieces. You won’t always need to write fast, but you’ll have a much easier time if you can. You’ll develop a network of sources of all viewpoints, reflecting the reality that governments, corporations, activists and individuals can all prop up or undercut First Amendment freedoms. You should also be a deep thinker who will help us define this role in ways we can’t yet imagine.

This is a full-time position that includes competitive pay, health insurance and vacation. Apply to editors@thewrap.com.
