TWT Launches Magazine for Black Conservatives

Well they’re just gunna try a little bit of everything over at The Washington Times, aren’t they?

Today the paper announced they will launch a magazine for black conservatives, the American CurrentSee. (We guess that’s a pun?) Ben Carson -the neurosurgeon  whose jeremiad against political correctness and healthcare reform at the National Prayer Breakfast last year made him famous in conservative circles -will be the publisher of the new digital weekly. Conservative columnist and radio host  Armstrong Williams will serve as executive editor. Fox News’ Juan Williams will also contribute to the first issue, which comes out March 30th.

TWT Expands Stable of Conservative Voices with Addition of O’Donnell

In what appears to be an effort to staff their paper with outspoken conservative voices that appeal to a Tea Party audience, The Washington Times announced today that former Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is being brought on as a columnist.

This follows the recent hirings of Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, defense hawk Cliff May, and radio hosts Tammy Bruce, Steve Deace, and Rusty Humphries. The spate of new hires also illustrates TWT Editor John Solomon‘s commitment to transforming the Times from a conventional paper into a multi-platform brand. In addition to her column, O’Donnell will serve as a commentator for TWT‘s nascent radio and video efforts. DeLay is also hosting an on-demand radio show, and Bruce, Deace, and Humphries will all contribute to online efforts as well as to the paper.

O’Donnell, of course, made a name for herself during her ultimately unsuccessful 2010 run for a Delaware Senate seat. She managed to defeat long-serving establishment Republican Rep. Mike Castle in the primary, but lost to Democrat Chris Coons in the general by a wide margin. She has since been a contributor on CNN and Fox News.

 

Lanny Davis, Christine O’Donnell Star in TWT Idol at CPAC

Sources at The Washington Times tell Fishbowl DC that this week will be a big one for one lucky young journalist at CPAC. If they have the interviewing chops to impress TWT writers and editors, that is.

TWT will be holding an “American Idol” style competition at CPAC on Thursday and Friday that will pit 14 aspiring journalists from universities across the country against one another for a chance at the ultimate prize for any young conservative: a  PAID internship at TWT. 

The 14 young sprites will take turns interviewing four victims guests on stage in front of a panel of Times’ judges, and the best interviewer will ultimately get the internship.

Guests interviewees  include: former Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell, TWT Opinion Editor David Keene, columnist Tammy Bruce, and former Clinton White House adviser Lanny Davis.

The judges will be: TWT Managing Editor Chris Dolan, Law Enforcement Correspondent Kelly Riddell, Senior Political Correspondent Ralph Hallow, Managing Editor Ian Bishop, Columnist Emily Miller, and Columnist Armstrong Williams.

 

Update 4:17: A previous version of this post stated that the internship at TWT won’t be paid. In fact, it will be a paid position.

Tammy Bruce to be Featured Columnist for Wash Times

Nationally-syndicated conservative talk show host and author Tammy Bruce will be penning an exclusive weekly column for The Washington Times, the Times announced today. Ms. Bruce is self-described as a “gay, gun-owning, pro-death penalty, Independent conservative.” She plans to spark a new and lively debate on current events which, she promised, will “astound the way the establishment thinks.”

“Ms. Bruce brings a unique depth to our stable of opinion columnists. I’m certain that Tammy will live up to The Washington Times prevailing principle to challenge conventional wisdom and bring a fresh take on current events. The Washington Times is delighted to be working with her,” said John Solomon, Wash Times Editor and VP of Content and Business Development.

Ms. Bruce is a well known advocate for both free speech and Second Amendment rights. Her positions on these issues were established in part from her experience as a radio talk show host. The “Tammy Bruce Show” premiered in 1993 in LA and was nationally syndicated in 2005, reaching more than 200 affiliates. In an effort to gain more freedom over her program, Ms. Bruce took her radio show independent in 2009. It is now exclusively available online and via podcast. Tammy Radio is one of the Top 5 radio programs on the worldwide internet radio hub TalkStreamLive.
