DM: "Surely, you don't seriously think that "most folks" inside the DC Metro area really read the Times. Do you? '
Someone must be reading it, otherwise they wouldn't publish it!
"Founded in 1982 by the Rev. Sun Myong Moon, the right-wing cult leader from South Korea, The Washington Times quickly made a name for itself with an approach to news reporting that was unusually ideological.
"While the Times made itself must reading for right-wingers, it was also developing a reputation for shoddy journalism. From the start, the Times' front page was studded with scandalous stories bearing catchy headlines and sensational openings that more closely echoed the style of European tabloids than that of large American newspapers."
"The Washington Times is the number 98 American newspaper based on daily readership.
"Based in Washington, DC, The Washington Times has daily readership of 231,778. It is owned by News World Communications, Inc.."
Hmmmm....quarter of a million readers....the WAshington POst doesn't have that many times more.....
