The Next WT Editor-in-Chief

Lots of talk about who is going to replace Wes Pruden as editor-in-chief of the Washington Times. The Don Mattingly candidate (i.e. the favorite for the position) remains Fran Coombs, but remember: Mattingly didn’t get the job.

Harry Jaffe looks at the job description, as does Howard Kurtz.

One of the more interesting parts of the job description?

    The new editor must have “respect for the vision of the founder of News World Communications and The Washington Times, which aims to further the values of faith, family and freedom, while conveying a global awareness, urbanity and sensitivity.”

On a related note, we hear that lots of Times employees — especially Metro reporters — are wondering what the heck ever happened to that big strategic plan promised by Washington Times President Thomas McDevitt.
