Right wing light

KPBS, the San Diego State University–owned public broadcasting operation that has been suffering financially of late, is looking for a new voice from the right. The website of the TV station and FM radio combination “has an opening for a Republican blogger with a conservative perspective on politics,” according to a recent advertisement on craigslist. “Bloggers write once a week and are paid a monthly stipend of $225.” But would-be Rush Limbaughs apparently need not apply. The ad notes that the KPBS blogging gig “is not a platform for advocacy; bloggers must be willing to listen and consider the views of others. Seeking diverse (culture, life experience, gender, and geographic) applicants to write about how election issues affect their lives and communities.”

The ad goes on to say, “Applicants should have a passion for learning and sharing information, be avid Internet surfers, and have an aptitude for learning how to do new things on the computer (i.e., learning how to use our blogging software). Writing/blogging experience is recommended, but not necessarily required. The ability to articulate personal reasons for political ideas is highly valued.” … Gay marriage money update: On July 9, La Jolla Democratic financier Murray Galinson gave $5000 to No on 8, the campaign against the gay marriage ban. The day before, El Cajon’s Brian Caster, proprietor of a self-storage warehouse chain, gave $10,000 to the National Organization for Marriage California, which is promoting the measure. … Scott Alevy, the ex–Chula Vista councilman who departed as PR vice president of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce a bit ago, signed on last month as a lobbyist at Karen Hutchens & Associates. According to the firm’s San Diego city disclosure filing, it currently has only one client, the Academy of Our Lady of Peace.
