So I was trollin' at HuffPo yesterday, telling some libtard about how if Obama wasn't a Muslim Marxist Kenyanazi that he would just show his birth certificate where it would say so. Then something caught my eye. It was a job ad that read "Writers Needed To Post Right-Wing Comments (Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Halifax)." "Perfect!" I chortled. "I live near Vancouver." But then it was gone, and I was left with nothing but a broken link and a half-finished cover letter lifted from my tear-stained Atlas Shrugged Cliffs Notes.
Writers needed to post right-wing comments to social media and news outlets.
We are a social media company working for a political organization, hired to help balance the left-wing bias of the major media outlets by supplying a team of writers who will post to newspaper comments, media forums, Facebook pages, etc.
Your writing must be strong, right-wing and use the supplied talking points without being bogged down in too much detail. You are creating an online persona with a consistent tone. Ideally you can find or construct facts and statistics to stir controversey. Where suited humour is welcome.
You are a news junky who is able to log on to news forums and Facebook pages several times a day. You are able to write comments tailored to new topics while repating key talking points.
Compensation: TBD, hourly rate and volume of online activity. Bonuses for controversial postings that heat up a topic or forums thread.
This ad, as it turned out, was a repost of an earlier Craigslist ad that had met a similar fate after short-lived infamy on the Twitter.
It's most likely a hoax.
But if it's not, all I can hope is that they that check out my work on Politico and elsewhere, where I post under the pseudonym "pasquino marforio."
