    The owner of the Washington Times entered into an agreement Tuesday to sell the paper to another entity affiliated with its parent, the Unification Church, which would return funding to the cash-strapped conservative publication, POLITICO has learned. The agreement was made Tuesday afternoon between News World Communications, the paper’s parent company, chaired by Preston Moon, and News World Media Development, a Delaware-registered LLC tied to other factions of the Unification Church, according to sources close to the negotiations. It sets forth a 30-day period for both sides to conduct due diligence, after which the paper will be sold, if both...

    Washington Times executives are negotiating to sell the newspaper, after the Rev. Sun Myung Moon's family cut off most of the annual subsidy of about $35 million that has kept the Unification Church-backed paper afloat, company officials said. Nicholas Chiaia, a member of the paper's two-man board of directors and president of the church-supported United Press International wire service, confirmed that the paper is actively on the market: "We recently entered into discussions with a number of parties interested in either purchasing or partnering with the Washington Times," he said in a statement to The Washington Post.

    President Obama's response to the catastrophic political failures of his freshman year in office is to fight harder for more of the same. Presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett made the point explicitly on Sunday, asserting that the White House is "not hitting a reset button at all." -snip- The White House claims it hasn't reached out enough to the American people, but the real problem is that Mr. Obama's vaunted oratorical skills have had a short shelf life. In the administration's first months, the president regularly took to the airwaves to push his agenda, attempting to mimic President Reagan's effective use...

    President Obama said Monday that he would "rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president." He will be lucky if he's not an abject failure. There's usually a reason for a presidency lasting a single term, as Mr. Obama's slow-motion train wreck is demonstrating. Mr. Obama took office with historically high approval ratings based on a combination of hope for his administration, reaction against President George W. Bush's second-term unpopularity and a degree of irrational exuberance, best illustrated by Newsweek editor Evan Thomas' cultish imageof Mr. Obama "standing above the country, above - above the world,...

Staff are receiving notices at the meeting, but it's unclear who will be laid off at this time. However, management is putting the number at around 40 percent, according to sources. A release went out after the meeting began that outlines some of the changes taking place in the first quarter of 2010.

    In the wake of a top management shakeup, the Washington Times plans to lay off about 40 percent of its staff and make other changes as it battles falling circulation and advertising revenue. The reorganization will include laying of about 40 percent of the newspaper's staff of 370 people, according to Don Meyer, principal of Rubin Meyer Communications, which is handling communications for the company. The Washington Times will also expand its relationship with United Press International, including sharing online sales, the Times said in a statement issued Wednesday. “We have developed plans to secure our position and advance our...

    The only way to support Creigh Deeds for governor of Virginia is to believe in a fairy tale - call it Three Little Governors. Once upon a time, the voters of Virginia elected a moderate Democratic problem solver to fix the state's transportation problems, but the first little governor, Mark Warner, didn't solve the problem. The voters decided to try again, but the next little governor, moderate Democratic problem solver Tim Kaine, didn't solve the problem, either.

The article listed The Washington Times editorial board as one of the sources of the "death panel" notion. The New York Times noted two of our editorials. Neither of those articles used the expression "death panels."

"But the rumor [that Obama's health care proposal would create death panels] - which has come up at Congressional town-hall-style meetings this week in spite of an avalanche of reports laying out why it was false - was not born of anonymous e-mailers, partisan bloggers or stealthy cyberconspiracy theorists," Jim Rutenberg and Jackie Calmes wrote...

    TEAM Obama veered off message yesterday, kicking off the campaign bus reporters from three newspapers deemed unfriendly to the campaign - The New York Post, The Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. This is bipartisanship? The move is utterly at odds with a central part of Obama's message: the idea that he's a different kind of candidate - one who won't demonize opponents or critics, but will instead work hard to bring people together. Let's hope this isn't a harbinger of what would happen in an Obama administration.

Sustaining the population of a nation requires that on average each couple gives birth to 2.1 children.

It was a tragic end to the bloodiest conflict in human history. The irony is that it would have been even worse had President Truman decided against using atomic weapons and instead authorized an invasion of the Japanese mainland. Estimates vary, but on the American side alone there would like have been between 200,000 and 1 million U.S. casualties. The Japanese toll would have been in the millions.

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The Washington Times newspaper is receiving criticism for disqualifying Patricia Heaton, an Emmy-award winning actress and Feminists for Life's honorary chairman, from winning a new annual award.

Feminists for Life was pleased to see that Heaton, a star on the hit comedy series "Everybody Loves Raymond," was one of the nominees for Noble of the Year. The pro-life organization receives hundreds of emails each time Heaton stands up...
