New Wash Times Site Blurring “Bright Line?”

In the past, FBDC reported that Wash Times’ John Solomon claims to uphold a “bright line between news and editorial.” So it comes as no surprise that the Times’ new site – theconservatives.com has some folks calling Solomon’s bluff.

Sure, the URL alone is pretty upfront but as one FBDC tipster points out – it’s not the content, it’s the contributors that are blurring the line between opinion and news.

Tara Wall, editor for theconservatives.com is also an AME on the “news side” of the Times. Wall makes a point of saying the site exists “because with the Democratic leadership in Congress, there is a fear that OUR VOICES will be lost.”

Amanda Carpenter, who does video and blogs for conservatives.com, sits right in the middle of the national news desk.

What do you think? Can Carpenter and Wall contribute to theconservatives.com while adhering to the bright line on the news side or did Solomon’s line just get really blurry?
