Washington Times to Name Dealey New Editor

The Washington Times' decision to use unpaid, nonprofessional community journalists has us worried about what our next career will be again.

Report: Washington Times to Name Dealey New Editor was originally published on City Desk on Jan. 29, 2010 at 9:34 p.m.

It just cut 50 or 60 percent of its newsroom staff, depending on which reports you believe.

It essentially dropped metro and sports coverage in the reductions.

It is caught in the middle of a massive power struggle within the Unification Church, the entity whose business interests finance and run it.

Yet the Washington Times is soldiering on, and will be announcing a new editor on Monday, according to U.S. News & World Report's Paul Bedard. It's 36-year-old Sam Dealey.

Bedard on Dealey's bio:

Dealey, a U.S. News contributor, is based in Washington, writing on national and foreign affairs. Besides contributing to Reader's Digest, he writes frequently for publications such as GQ, Details, and The New York Times. Dealey has also reported from Africa for CNN and PBS's NewsHour With Jim Lehrer. He is a media fellow at the Hoover Institution.

The Dallas native was a reporter for The Hill newspaper, an editorial board member at The Washington Times, and assistant managing editor of The American Spectator.

Dealey would be taking over a newsroom that's been in flux ever since the November drama that saw the departure of editor John Solomon as well as top officials on the publishing side.

City Desk will be working to snare some updates on this story. Stay tuned.
