FYI: Unification Church Facing Disunity, Business Failures‏
]Last month, the church announced that Moon was passing day-to-day control to his three U.S.-educated sons.
But an apparent feud broke out this month between two of them when Hyun Jin Moon, often known by his American name, Preston, and Hyung Jin Moon, known as Sean, issued dueling memos asserting competing claims of control over portions of their father's empire.
Unification clergy are trying to stay above the fray.
....In the Washington area, several organizations with ties to the church have suffered financially over the past year, including Moon's media holding company, News World Communications, which owns the Washington Times, the United Press International wire service and the Atlantic Video TV production facility.
As of August 2008, analysts estimated that Moon had subsidized the Times by at least $1 billion since it was launched in 1982; analysts have also estimated that the newspaper has lost close to $2 billion since it was founded.
....Three top Times executives were ousted two weeks ago: president and publisher Thomas McDevitt, finance chief Keith Cooperrider and chairman Dong Moon Joo, who all declined to comment. The executive editor, John Solomon, a former Post reporter, resigned; he did not return phone calls for comment.
