1. Voice of the White House recently mentioned this in connection with Rove
Promised more info coming, but haven't seen anything lately. Of course, like the Weekly World News I think this VOTWH is probably just worth entertainment value.

6. Actually, Moon FOUNDED the Times in 1982
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 11:45 AM by UdoKier
He has ALWAYS owned it.

http://www.disinfopedia.org/wiki.phtml?title=Washington...

In a speech on the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the Washington Times, Moon explained his motivation behind establishing the paper. "I founded The Washington Times as an expression of my love for America and to fulfill the Will of God, who seeks to establish America in His Providence," he said.

"In the context of God's Will, there needed to be a newspaper that had the philosophical and ideological foundation to encourage and enlighten the people and leaders of America," he explained.

In Moon's analysis, there was an important role for the paper in bolstering support for the continuance of the cold war against Russia."The Washington Times' editorials and columns supported the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) at a time when many were trying to block this critical development," he said.
