Sources at The Washington Times tell Fishbowl DC that this week will be a big one for one lucky young journalist at CPAC. If they have the interviewing chops to impress TWT writers and editors, that is.
TWT will be holding an “American Idol” style competition at CPAC on Thursday and Friday that will pit 14 aspiring journalists from universities across the country against one another for a chance at the ultimate prize for any young conservative: a PAID internship at TWT.
The 14 young sprites will take turns interviewing four
victims guests on stage in front of a panel of Times’ judges, and the best interviewer will ultimately get the internship.
Guests interviewees include: former Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell, TWT Opinion Editor David Keene, columnist Tammy Bruce, and former Clinton White House adviser Lanny Davis.
The judges will be: TWT Managing Editor Chris Dolan, Law Enforcement Correspondent Kelly Riddell, Senior Political Correspondent Ralph Hallow, Managing Editor Ian Bishop, Columnist Emily Miller, and Columnist Armstrong Williams.
Update 4:17: A previous version of this post stated that the internship at TWT won’t be paid. In fact, it will be a paid position.
