Examiners wanted

Free USA daily The Examiner is looking for free lance journalists/bloggers called ‘examiners’ in 59 US markets. The printed paper has editions in San Francisco, Washington and Baltimore; the online editions are nation wide.

Examiners are expected to post at least three times a week. They even will be paid according to the ad in MediaBistro:

The compensation for this role will be based on page views. There is an opportunity for incremental variable compensation based on your level of readership. The goal is to make you as rich and famous as possible. (SF Peninsula Press Club)

There could arise some problems with the independence of ‘examiners’ as they are not employed by the paper and might pursue other interests at the same time. They even could be employed by some interest groups and use the Examiner to promote their ‘real’ employer, as is probably shown by this example by the Northwest Progressive Institute Official Blog.
