Hannah Jackman, program director of Young America’s Foundation’s National Journalism Center (NJC), has firsthand experience with the mainstream media’s liberal bias.

Her experience working as an intern in the “war room” with a mainstream television broadcast media outlet,  showed her that “all these newsrooms develop a groupthink because they are surrounded by people who are like them, [and] the news skews to left of center.”

But the media landscape looks to be moving in conservatives’ favor, partially because of Jackman, who places promising conservative journalism students as interns at news organizations.

“The internet and talk radio have been an absolute blessing to conservatives,” Jackman said. “Niche journalism I think will continue to expand and thrive and I think that the democratization of journalism will only continue.”

Jackman is concerned, however that “the next generation of Americans coming up is going to be discouraged from following their dreams… they are going to make decisions and concessions that they might otherwise not if they had faith in our economic future.”

That is why Jackman stresses to her interns the importance of making the most of their job opportunities and the value of maintaining their reputations, which “will propel [you] forward professionally, because that really is the only thing you have control over.” Your reputation “will be the greatest currency that you can carry with you in your early professional life.”

“I would advise you in every interaction to be professional. Be kind.”
