Press Release - Top Journalists Join World Journalism Institute at CPAC

Jan 6, 2011

New York, N.Y., January 6, 2011—The World Journalism Institute has become a participating organization in the 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), seeking to equip young conservative journalists to effectively compete for jobs in the mainstream newsrooms of America. This year’s conference will be held in Washington, D.C., from February 10-12. CPAC is the nation’s largest gathering of conservatives annually. It is a project of the American Conservative Union Foundation.

CPAC brings together nearly 10,000 attendees and all of the leading conservative organizations and speakers who impact conservative thought in the nation. Regularly seen on C-SPAN and other national news networks, CPAC has been the premiere event for any major elected official or public personality seeking to discuss issues of the day with conservatives. From Presidents of the United States to college student leaders, CPAC has become the place to find our nation’s current and future leaders.

WJI will hold seminars and panel discussions on freelance writing, investigative reporting, opinion writing, the new media’s role in the Tea Party movement, as well as offering a tutorial class for young college journalists by top editors of WORLD magazine.

Accomplished journalists such as Mark Tapscott (Washington Examiner), Mindy Belz, Marvin Olasky and Nick Eicher (WORLD magazine), Bill Mattox, Julia Duin, Fred Barnes and Andrew Ferguson (Weekly Standard), Ross Douthat (New York Times), David Brody (CBN News) and SE Cupp will be joining WJI for the conference.

Robert Case, director of the World Journalism Institute, stated, “We have had our displays and seminars in the major professional journalism gatherings for the last decade. We are now broadening our outreach.”

The World Journalism Institute’s mission is to recruit, equip, place and encourage Christian journalists in the newsrooms of first America and then the world. To that end, WJI offers courses, conferences, internship funding, and monographs on the intersection of Christianity and journalism.
