The Washington Times is dumping its “Communities” page, causing “Communities” editor Jacquie Kubin to start a mad dash to move all the content located there to a new site. In emails to “Communities” contributors obtained by FishbowlDC, a frantic Kubin details her fraught relationship with TWT and her efforts to wrest control of the “Communities” content away from the paper.
“The Chines [sic] symbols for crisis are ‘danger” and “opportunity,’” Kubin says in one email. “Working with TWT has always been a challenge. They are a client, but have always felt they were a parent. Things are changing: What we have in front of us is opportunity. And I like opportunity.”
