Editor Trashes Bosses in Resignation Note

Former Deputy Editor of Op-Eds for The Washington Times Anneke Green quit just before Christmas. But before she did, she submitted what may go down in FishbowlDC history as the ballsiest resignation letter we’ve ever seen.

Green, a relatively mild-mannered low-key brunette, was previously a books editor for Regnery Publishing and served in the White House speechwriting office of President George W. Bush. Her resume weaves on in other impressive directions. She was also a leadership staff member to then-Senate Majority Whip Mitch McConnell, and did a stint as a policy advisor and press liaison at the Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

See her ballsy letter…

TWT’s Brett Decker Calls it Quits

TWT has announced the resignation of its Editorial Page Editor Brett Decker. He has held the position since 2009. Among his predecessors are the late Tony Blankley and Tony Snow.

At least outwardly everyone is playing nice, although the release couldn’t sound more stiff and political. President and CEO Larry Beasley “thanked Mr. Decker for his contributions in furthering The Times’ reputation as a leading voice of conservative thought and opinion, and said The Times will continue to build on that reputation as it adapts to serve its readers in today’s fast-changing digital news environment.”

TWT is on the prowl for a new Editorial Page Editor. Until then… Read more

TWT Editor Lands Spread in Car and Driver

The August issue of Car and Driver has a full-page spread on TWT Senior Editorial Page Editor Richard Diamond . The story, written by Phil Berg, involves his work on traffic-related issues, especially fighting those speed cameras and red light cameras we all hate. One of his colleagues is hailing the story as “outside the Beltway cool.”

In doing research on political issues Car and Driver came upon Diamond on a daily site he runs called thenewspaper.com. He created the blog in 2004 to address politics and car issues. He considers it a hobby as it does not earn him money.

The editor was clearly amenable about being featured in the magazine.

“I’ve subscribed to Car and Driver since I was 16, so it’s a great magazine and it’s nice to be in there,” Diamond told FishbowlDC. Something else that happened at age 16: Diamond got a speeding ticket in California when a police officer parked in a hidden driveway.

Everything comes full circle. Years later, the piece explains, he worked for then-House Majority Leader Dick Armey and investigated traffic-ticketing issues and the politics behind red lights and speed cameras.

The story is not readily available online. “They want you to buy the magazine,” Diamond explained.

 

 

Emily Miller Joins TWT

Human Events Senior Editor Emily Miller is going to work for TWT. Her title is Senior Editor of the Editorial and Opinion pages. She’ll continue to work out of an office on Capitol Hill.

In April of 2010, Miller left Politics Daily for TWT as a freelancer. In August she moved again when she began her job for Human Events.

So she’s well acquainted with the team that includes Editorial Page Editor Brett Decker, Dave Mastio, Richard Diamond, James Robbins, Anneke Green, Kerry Picket and Frank Perley.

“We are thrilled to have Emily Miller bring her unique behind-the-scenes perspective of politics to The Washington Times Opinion pages,” said Decker in a statement. “Emily has worked at the highest levels of power in Washington, and she brings that wealth of insider knowledge and experience to her reporting.”

Congratulations to Miller!
