    [size=+4]Former 'WSJ' Editorial Writer to Head 'Wash Times' Opinion Pages [/size]

    By Joe Strupp

    Published: March 08, 2009 6:30 PM ET

    NEW YORK - Richard Miniter, an author and former Wall Street Journal editorial writer, has been named editor of the editorial pages and vice president of opinion at The Washington Times, according to a release.

    Miniter will head what are considered among the most conservative editorial pages in a post that had been previously held by the likes of Tony Blankley, former chief of staff to Newt Gingrich, and Tony Snow, who later served as President George W. Bush’s press secretary.

    “Minter, who wrote two New York Times bestselling books, and won awards for investigative reporting at the Sunday Times of London, is a former editorial writer and columnist for the Wall Street Journal Europe and WSJ.com,” the announcement added. “His articles have appeared in The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal as well as The Atlantic Monthly, Reader's Digest, National Review and The New Republic. He is a regular commentator on Fox News Channel, MSNBC, CNN, C-Span, and CNBC and many nationally syndicated radio programs.”

    I heard the WT couldn't pry Kos away from his weblog, so they had to settle for Miniter.


    :rolleyes:

    What's YOUR problem???

    I've helped collect more than a thousand signatures to an appeal letter to the president of Kazakhstan. I personally delivered the letter to the Ambassador of Kazakhstan here in Vilnius. We have attorneys already on the ground there in Astana, other folks too. If I went there I'd only be more thunder than is needed at the moment; surgery requires a delicate tool, not a battle-axe. Do you know ANYTHING about dealing with heads of state??? Especially in small unstable nations??

    Once again an idiotic thread becomes all about Foggie, I guess what is the significance here.. do you really believe that the Washington Times is that significant.. consider the Pelosi Mice article, which has been proven false and they have not printed a retraction..

    The Washington times has a circulation of about 102, 000 and has lost almost 2 billion dollars spreading the moon religion.. 2 billion could have done a lot of good for America and the world.. they are not even in the top 100 newspapers in the US..

    If you enjoy a completely biased rag, read it.. no one cares.. stop making a complete fool of yourselves..

    No, it is not. It's about the Washington Times and its continued growth to becoming the commonly recognized pre-eminent news paper in America. Already many believe that, but like all prophetic efforts it's always so much easier to stone the prophets in the beginning than to believe them. And I AM talking directly to YOU, "Darryl".

    Anyway, if you don't like the thread, then just keep on walking. Nobody's holding a gun to your head forcing you to read it.

    Think of all the good that Rev. Moon could have done with 2 billion dollars on humanity, instead of using it to try to recruit future moonies...

    BTW you ain't a prophet, you who criticized the way folks spend money.. but can defend this money pit..

    The only people reporting that there is growth is the Washington Times.. betcha our resident newspaper folks can give better numbers..

    Foggy, anybody who actually lives here knows the newspapers of record in this country are the Washington Post and the New York Times, with a whining fringe complaining mightily that, essentially, reality is "too liberal," and filling the void with more fables through more media.

    Of course, the big picture is that it looks like this recession may be all but the last gasp for print outlets. All who see the actual physical paper paper as somehow filling a different need from the web and the TV, take notice.

    Addendum: prophet denotes a religious figure. I believe you're looking for the word profit, denoting a monetary success. The Times, however, has never created either.

    That's been said before: "Build an ARK !! .... on a MOUNTAIN TOP!!! What are you smokin', Noah? I want some!!"

    "PROMISED land!!! Where exactly do YOU 'promise' that we land, O Great One, Moses????"

    "God's Kingdom??? On THIS earth??? What are YOU drinking, Jesus of Nazareth??? Give me some!!!!"

    Ah, well.... now where's that passage about throwing pearls before swine.... ??

    To think what Rev. Moon could have done for many causes instead of sinking 2 billion dollars into a propaganda rag....

    When you think of the hundreds of TRILLIONS of dollars others -- like the U.S. Congress, for starters -- could have done for the sake of world peace, instead of investing in war, war, and more war, as well as money for nothing and checks for free, Rev. Moon could have used those monies for other things, sure. But as long as the Chris Matthews, Katie Courics and Keith Olbermann's of the world are the poster boys for the U.S. media empire, SOMEBODY has to step up and tell the truth!! Which is EXACTLY what the Washington Times does. Every single day.

    Ah! The retroactive anti-war screed! How refreshing!

    Shall we take this as the official non-interventionist shift of you and yours, on the occasion of the election of a new commander in chief?

    If the new cic works for family values, to protect life, human honor and common decency, and not repeat the old time "war first, reconciliation later" approach, he will have my support. The jury is still out, but the first inning is proving to be hard for Barry to pitch out of. He's already down 8-0, and he's not gotten any batters out yet.

    ... ah, yes, the old "sect" routine. Next, you'll be saying, "He's a blasphemer, he works on the Sabbath, he has tax-collectors, fishermen, and even prostitutes following him!!!!"


    Hint: the dinosaurs died out for a reason.

    There are 365 days in a year, and 4 years in a term. That's 1460 days, give or take. A baseball game is 9 innings, assuming no extra innings. So, doing the math, you can tell me how the first inning went after 162 days. (Assuming a single term.)

    All you've got now, depending on your point of view, is "Struck out that first guy!" or "wow. gave up a homer on the first pitch." Me, I think he got the first batter, and obviously, you think he's screwing up. But then, my interest is America, and yours is your sect's idea of God.

    Tell you what, Mr. Know-it-all: YOU go out and start a new religion or whatever other kind of movement you want. YOU do a better job at helping people to know God and God's heart, to know how to live, to have a clear idea of what life is all about. Go ahead, Big Talker.

    Here's a promise: the day you eclipse Rev. Moon is the day I will follow YOUR teachings. And I'll bring a few thousand others will me, too, so you'll never have to worry about where your next meal is coming from, either.
