A Bad Year to Launch a New Washington Times Digital Project
Justin Elliott notices that TheConservatives.com, the Web hub slowly rolled out over 2009 by The Washington Times, appears to be dead. I’ve asked an editor of the Website what the status is, but a cloud hung over the site soon after it officially launched. Weeks after John Solomon pitched the site at the Heritage Foundation, promising another Web hub for progressives, he was forced out of the paper.
Update: Brian Faughnan, a conservative blogger who’d been writing and editing much of the site’s content, informs me that he’s been let go. His e-mail:
I have been terminated here at the Times. And while I have not received official notification, I believe it is safe to assume the site has been canceled.
