The Gouverneur Times is allegedly setting up an office in Dallas-Fort Worth as they have placed recruitment advertisements for reporters through the Texas Workforce Commission where they have stated categorically that they would be challenging for market share with both The Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the Dallas Morning news with a staff strength that’s comparable to that of both newspapers.
Salary starts at $900 per week and they are looking for 10 years’ experience. Presently, their website dfwtribune.com redirects to a test site for the Gouverneur Times named after Gouverneur Morris, one of the founding fathers of the country, who is an American Statesman born in New York. He encouraged the concept of a single union and was referred to as ‘penmen of the constitution’. He has a pegleg as a result of losing his leg in a carriage accident but there are stories saying he lost his leg after jumping from a window in a bid to escape from the jealous husband of another woman.
If you’re desperately in need of a job then you may have to check out names like Dave Norris, Merkel Malkin, and James Siddick, and a host of others. According to the Dallas Observer, the owner, based in New York spoke at a get-together on the topic of launching an online local News site that is conservative.
Competition may not be the right word here, but this has all the hallmarks of a conservative online newspaper targeting Texas’ conservative audience.
