CBS Seeks Enviro-Reporter, Knowledge of Environment Not Required

In a job posting that’s curious at best and a bad PR gaffe at worst, CBS News has a job posting on JournalismJobs for an eco-reporter position, but the job description states, ‘Knowledge of the enviro beat is a big plus, but not a requirement.’ They do, however, want you to be but must be ‘funny, irreverent and hip, oozing enthusiasm and creative energy.’

That sound you hear is the conservative blogosphere pulling out its hair.
