JOB POSTING: Writers Needed To Post Right-Wing Comments, BONUS for trolling
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.

8. Yes, it's from Calgary.
'Coallitions' though? You'd think they'd spell the headline their trolls are going to use, properly.

God these people are crazy.

9. I've wondered about these passionate, anti-progressive, Canadian posters
I check profiles, when available, of a few really offensive posters. Sure enough, a couple listed Canada as their country.

7. Has anyone seen anything equivalent on the left.
I've seen things like this from the right before, and from certain companies trying to deal with controversy.

Personally I think the economics behind this are fascinating. The leftward tilt of reality makes their ideology so weak in the market place of ideas that they require subsidies to remain relevant in the pubic discourse.

10. Apparently the original has been removed from Craig's list...but I found this one! lol

"Writers needed to post left-wing comments to social media"

Same wording as the other ad.

16. You may be right. Wish I could see the original... Can one get paid for indirect posting??...
that is, posting to Craig's list that, in turn, stirs up controversy on social networking sites?

17. Now, THAT'S interesting..........
The EXACT same working.

I said in another thread responding about the RW ad, that this could be a GREAT place for some left wing "dirty trix", as the BEST recruiters for socialism are the MOST rabid right wingers.

This could be the same thing (RW dirty trix) from the opposite direction.

20. Maybe its a dirty trick...or a double dirty trick..or a double double! who is to know nowadays...
I might be on the right pretending to be someone on the left writing right posts.
or it may be purposely bad writing...or not...

best to take all with a grain of salt sometimes.

22. True, but my mind runs to conspiracy speculation .........
sometimes.

You know, I DID live through the Nixon era, so I come by it honestly. Oh yeah, that Iran/Contra thing too. To paraphrase, just because you have paranoid conspiracy theories, doesn't mean there aren't paranoid conspiracies out there. :)

15. "Your writing must be strong ...without being bogged down in too much detail"
In other words: dumb it down for the intended viewing audience who is barely literate...

19. Saw something similar put up at HuffPo
a month or so ago with a direct link to the company doing the hiring. Some reichwing PR firm, but the name slips my mind.

This would account for the cesspit of trollery that HuffPo and some other nominally leftish sites have turned into.

Thank dog the mods here are quick to deliver the pizzas.

21. When I joined here, I just assumed all the posts redefining the Democratic Platform as Reaganomics
were of this variety.

25. Can you eat a scruple..
if so, do you have a recipe.

I wish there were people on the left hiring to do this. Perhaps the left has too m any scruples to push propaganda so blatantly.

27. What's to stop me from lying to them and
saying I post conservative shit and just pocketing the cash? I assume they want work product? I can dig up thousands of troll posts from around the web and pretend they are mine.

28. It is just too explosive an ad placed in a public place. I think there is some Liberal baiting going
on here. I hope the Liberals don't bite.
