  The Washington Times - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Times was founded in 1982 by Sun Myung Moon, leader of the Unification Church and the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, to be a conservative alternative to the larger Washington Post.
Times critics such as Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting assert significant influence by the Church on the paper and give the Church significant credit (or blame) for the Times' actions.
Washington Times editors firmly deny any Church influence on their news coverage and editorial policy, or that they have any interest in proselytizing directly for the Unification Church.

 NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Washington Times
The Washington Times is a daily newspaper published in Washington, D.C. It was founded in 1982 as a conservative alternative to the Washington Post by members of the controversial Unification Church.
It should not be confused with the Washington Times established in 1893, which became the Washington Times-Herald and was merged with the Washington Post in 1954.
While Times reporters have prided themselves on their independence from the church's position, this has occasionally put them at odds with the founder's claims of having direct influence on the Republican Party via his extravagant funding of the newspaper.

 Washington Times-Herald - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Washington Times-Herald was an American daily newspaper once published in Washington, D.C. The Times-Herald was created by the 1939 merger of two former Hearst dailies, the Washington Times (not to be confused with the current Washington Times) and the Washington Herald.
Cissy Patterson ran the merged publication until her death in 1948; it was subsequently purchased by her cousin, Robert R. McCormick.
The "Times-Herald" portion of the masthead became less and less prominent in ensuing years, however, and was dropped entirely by the early 1970s.

 Behind the Times
The Washington Times, the right-wing daily that bills itself as an alternative to the Washington Post, is owned and influenced by Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church.
The Washington Times public relations line -- printed as fact in a Time magazine profile (6/15/87) -- maintains that the newspaper is "owned by a group of Korean investors affiliated with the Unification Church." These "investors" -- the Korean-based Tong-II Industries -- do not seem to view the Times as a profit-making venture.
Current Times editor-in-chief Arnaud de Borchgrave told the Washington Post (5/6/87) that a Tong-II executive described one of the company's factories as "the logistical tail of the Washington Times." "They are very conscious of the fact that a certain portion of their profit comes to us to meet the subsidy," de Borchgrave said.
