Another heaping helping of the piping hot casserole of crazy coming out of The Washington Times this morning: After a press release and a memo about the press release were issued in reference to TWT‘s major management overhaul, an email was finally sent to staff, inviting them to freak out meet in the ballroom at 11:30 for a meeting to discuss moving forward in a financially responsible manner.

Amazing.

Memo after the jump.

TWT Management to Discuss Exec. Overthrow at 10AM

Sources inside The Washington Times say that the paper’s management team has been called together for a 10 am meeting to discuss the Moon brother’s surprise overthrow of three top executives.

President and publisher Thomas P. McDevitt, CFO Keith Cooperrider and Chairman Dong Moon Joo are all out according to a press release that TWT issued this morning. The release also names Jonathan Slevin as acting president and publisher.

Rumors are swirling that Executive Editor John Solomon who’s been in his position since January of 2008 may resign as a result of the shakeup. In my humble opinion, that would be mean huge trouble for the Times and a blow to morale that I’m not certain the newsroom could handle.

According to our sources, TWT staff has not been briefed nor received any information regarding the changes or implications of the shakeup.
