Wash Times on the Brink?


Yesterday we brought you this story about how a feud/succession struggle within the Moon family seems to be the underlying reason for the staff shake-up that happened over the weekend — and the possible departure of Executive Editor John Solomon. We’re going to have new reports for you on this story shortly. But one key is that the future operation of the Washington Times — either as a print newspaper or in any form at all — seems to be in real question, whether that’s because the Moon family decides for its own ideological or familial reasons to pull the plug or because the fighting within the family creates a cash shortfall that prevents the paper from staying open.

If you’re a staffer at the Times or anyone else who has tips or insights on what’s happening at the paper, we definitely want to hear from you. Send us an email at the comments address at the upper right of the site.
