Bizarre Doings at the Washington Times
It’s getting weird at the Washington Times, as a reported power struggle in Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church causes chaos among the paper’s top management.
There’s still a lot of confusion in the Washington Times newsroom, two days after the removal of three top business-side executives and high-ranking members of the Unification Church.�
Executive Editor John Solomon hasn’t been in the office for several days, and it’s unclear whether he’ll return. When new Publisher and President Jonathan Slevin addressed staff Monday, he didn’t mention the paper’s top editor or take questions. (Solomon hasn’t returned numerous calls and e-mails since Sunday night.)
But things are getting stranger. Talking Points Memo reported yesterday that there have been armed guards spotted on the third floor, where management works. The floor, it was reported, has now been closed to the rank and file.
