The Washington Times is a conservative paper owned by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. It should not be confused with the Washington Post, which is the primary daily newspaper in Washington, DC, and a leading authority on U.S. politics.

Founded in 1982, The Washington Times has an average daily circulation of 103,017.

By comparison, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has an average daily circulation of 294,187 and USA Today has a total daily paid circulation of 1,921,053.

Reverend Sun Myong Moon has publicly outlined the mission of The Washington Times:

"The Washington Times was created to help in America's salvation. Accept God and Reverend Moon. That is the theoretical conclusion. No smart American can deny that answer. This is the reality. Who did that? The American government or Reverend Moon? The creation of The Washington Times in 1982 was for that purpose. American conservatives cannot deny Father's great influence for moral values. Without Father's guidance for the Washington Times, this country couldn't have found a direction. Literally nine hundred million to one billion dollars has been spent to activate and run the Washington Times."

On March 23, 2004, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, The Reverend Moon declared himself "Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent” and a bejeweled crown was placed upon his head. Several Capitol Hill lawmakers attended the coronation ceremony. They later claimed they had not been aware of the purpose of the event which was sponsored by The Washington Times Foundation.
