The Washington Times: Where Right-wingers Go For Propaganda er… News! (Yeah, that’s the ticket)

by Ben Hoffman

Just a little background on the Washington Times:

  • The Washington Times is a newspaper owned by Reverend Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church
  • Moon once said, “While the media can provide all the facts, they also have the responsibility to provide values to prevent confusion and to provide leadership and direction, especially today when the entire world is flooded with news and information. The Washington Times and its affiliated media properties are taking a leading role in this regard.”
  • During a sermon, Rev. Moon asked any Jews present to raise their hands. When they did, he told them to repent for having killed Jesus and went on to explain that it was as an indemnity for this that 6 million Jews died during the Holocaust.
  • Moon referred to gays as “dung-eating dogs” and stated that they will be “eliminated” by God.
  • Moon once said “I am God’s ambassador, sent to earth with His full authority. I am sent to accomplish His command to save the world’s six billion people, restoring them to Heaven with the original goodness in which they were created.”
  • “They have declared to all Heaven and Earth that Reverend Sun Myung Moon is none other than humanity’s Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent. This resolution has been announced on every corner of the globe,” he said.
  • Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church played a key role in supporting the Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan’s Million Family March in Washington D.C.

  1. Sounds like Moon and Reverend Wright would make a good pair.

  2. Ben you left out a few things. Like how he’s getting Christian ministers to burn all the crosses at their churches – and honestly I haven’t the energy today to go find out why!

    And there’s the time he had himself crowned as emperor of the world in the halls of the US congress.

    And his stated goal of destroying the USA.

    If I must, I’ll go get links, but this is serious weird.

  3. Well, Liberals always have MSDNC…

  4. And ABC,NBC,CBS,CNN, The New York Times, LA Times, Newsweek, et al…

    • That NY Times, Time Mag, LA Times stuff? You say liberals have them, I say the American public has them. Because people support those publications with their dollars. They’re all public corporatios and have subscribers in the millions and advertisers who spend tens of millions. Publications like the Wash Times, NY Post and Weekly Standard etc are entirely privately owned and are supported by private money cuz they can’t make money in the market.

    • Most unbiased research into the area of the “liberal media bias” show that, by and large, it is a myth.
      the organizations you offer are all owned by free-market capitalists that are in it for the money and have ultimate editorial and content control.
      The liberal media bias myth can be traced directly back to the nixon administration “nattering naybobs of negativity” and has persisted ever since through the right wing echo chamber.
      don’t buy into it simply because some one with a political agenda told you it’s true.
