CNN is in need of a detail oriented copy editor.

From TVNewser.

If you’re a self-appointed grammar cop and can’t stand the sight of a typo, listen up. CNN is looking for a copy editorto join its New York-based team.

In this role, you’ll fact-check and proofread every script before it goes to air. You’ll be responsible for elevating the level of copy, and scanning every piece of tape in program. Copy should be conversational and easy to understand for a morning audience, so you should be able to break down a complicated story and tell it in a clear and concise way.

To be considered, you should have at least three years of experience as a writer or copy editor at a cable news organization, broadcast network, or top ten market local TV newsroom. Naturally, you’ll need to be a creative mind with strong writing and editing skills, and you should be up on current events. Knowledge of libel laws is another must-have. Interested? Apply here.

It’s always encouraging when a news organization has a job opening considering how much they have been cutting back recently- CNN just pink slipped 50 staffers a couple of weeks ago.

Even more since they want  someone who is detail oriented.  Maybe that will also lead to fewer biased stories as well.

We can always hope even if it is CNN.
