Rev. Moon Wants Washington Times Back

I haven’t written about the Rev. Moon in a long time, but this report caught my eye:

Four years ago, Unification Church founder Rev. Sun Myung Moon gave the Washington Times to his eldest son. Now, following a year of turmoil and uncertainty at the publication, he is considering paying millions to buy it back, the Washington Post reports.

Citing former Times staffers with knowledge of the negotiations, the newspaper reported Moon may pay millions of dollars to purchase the conservative publication that he founded in 1982. His son, Preston Moon, has threatened to shut down the newspaper.

The true messiah has to negotiate such things with his own son? This ain’t your father’s cult leader.
