Washington Times Denies Drudge Reports Claims Of Being Sold

watimes_logo_3.31.10.jpgYesterday, the Drudge Report posted an article stating that several unidentified sources had claimed the Washington Times was up for sale.

The paper’s publisher, Jonathan Slevin, is now trying to set the record straight, putting out a statement that, despite recent financial troubles and a 17 percent drop in daily circulation, the newspaper currently has no plans to sell:

The Washington Times has been approached throughout its history with expressions of interest by parties interested in purchasing all or part of the company. Contrary to online reports, however, the Washington Times is not currently negotiating with any party for sale of all or part of the company.

And there you have it.
