The Broward/Palm Beach New Times looking for new writers!

The New Times is famous for reporting breaking news and then retooling the story until they get it right. Of note were the stories about the Fort Lauderdale Police and the confrontations with the Critical Mass rides in July and August. In typical fashion the police are assumed to be wrong, the aggressor, and the bike riders are assumed to be righteous, innocent, incapable of wrongdoing. 

The days after the initial reports showed a very different reality. The police were doing their job and the bicyclists had broken the law and the rules agreed to before the Critical Mass ride began. It was really that simple.

Now we have a new development at the New Times. They're looking for new writers to join their team. If you are interested click here.

From the story:
"Applicants should have solid news judgment and knowledge of current events. They should be able to discover relevant local stories, report hard news, and meet deadlines.
Interested candidates, please send a résumé and three clips to:
No phone calls, please."
