Birnbaum: WaTimes’ “journalism had faded”

If you worked at the Washington Times before John Solomon came on board, you might not like what new Washington Times employee Jeffrey Birnbaum has to say about your work then:

    It’s a turnaround situation at the Washington Times. . … the paper was allowed to, in effect, decline and lapse and its journalism faded and that was a terrible situation. It was a lost asset. There are nearly 200 reporters and editors at the Washington Times. For it to survive and thrive what it needed was real journalistic standards to be applied.

Watch Birnbaum’s comments on this C-SPAN video (starts about nine minutes in).
