TWT: Festive to a Fault

Much to his amazement, former TWT sports writer Mark Zuckerman, who now covers the Nats for NatsInsider.com, got a special Christmas card this year — from his old employer, TWT, you know, the newspaper that laid him off last year?

“Got a Christmas card from … The Washington Times,” he wrote on Twitter. “I don’t even know where to begin with this one. #firedmelastyear #jewish”

But Zuckerman wasn’t the only laid off scribe who got gushy Christmas wishes. Some who still haven’t found new jobs got them along with those who have successfully moved on. Clearly TWT leadership hasn’t updated their mailing list.

One scribe noted, “Always festive and funny at TWT. Fortunately for me, the layoff was the kick-in-the-ass I needed to get me out of there an on to a better place. I’m much better off than I was at TWT, and at a great company with a real vision and an actual business sense and plan.”
