I personally don't read the Washington Times or the Post. The Times has always tilted towards the right, I don't think it has anything to do with Mr. Moon. (So, I don't see it as a political issue) Americans are free to make their own judgements about the papers ownership and whether it bothers them to the extent of not reading it. Americans are also free to evaluate the quality of coverage and whether that coverage is fair and balanced.
As a sidenote, have you heard of the "Christian Science Monitor"...it is a well respected international newspaper. But do I not read it because its operated by Christian Scientists?

The great thing about cable and the internet is that it has decentralized news coverage. Now, almost every political persuasion can have their views heard and read. AH YES, the beauty of free societies and a free press!
