If you listened to WTOP, you might not know that The Washington Times’ newest re-hire actually works for TWT. On January 15, TWT‘s new “Chief Digital Officer” went on WTOP and was described as working for the Washington Guardian, his apparent other gig. WTOP’s website lists Solomon as working for the Washington Guardian. Their on-air host also twice refers to him as working for the Washington Guardian.
What, is TWT small potatoes? “Chief Digital Officer” doesn’t exactly sound like a small role. Is the emperor not wearing any clothes?
Solomon, who was executive editor of TWT until 2009 when he left amid disagreements with other upper management personnel, was on WTOP to discuss military spending cuts. You’d think at some point he’d chime in something about TWT? Nope.
“Once we start these cuts it’s going to be very hard. … a lot of potential consequence down the road,” he said.
We reached out to Solomon for comment.
