Well they’re just gunna try a little bit of everything over at The Washington Times, aren’t they?

Today the paper announced they will launch a magazine for black conservatives, the American CurrentSee. (We guess that’s a pun?) Ben Carson -the neurosurgeon  whose jeremiad against political correctness and healthcare reform at the National Prayer Breakfast last year made him famous in conservative circles -will be the publisher of the new digital weekly. Conservative columnist and radio host  Armstrong Williams will serve as executive editor. Fox News’ Juan Williams will also contribute to the first issue, which comes out March 30th.

The magazine comes on the heels of two other significant developments at TWT. The first is an influx of big, conservative personalities to produce multi-platform content. Radio hosts Rusty HumphriesSteve Deace, and Tammy Brucealong with  Christine O’DonnellTom DeLay, and foreign affairs hawk Cliff May, were all brought on in the last three months to write columns, record Internet radio shows, and do digital video.

The second is a plan the paper announced earlier this month to offer travel-planning services on their website. TWT apparently envisions a future where “travelers can read an article about an upcoming event or popular travel destination and book the associated trip on the spot.”

  1. This web site for the American Current See does not work. You cannot access the magazine without signing up and the sign up process does not work. And there is no contact link, no way to tell them that it doesn’t work. I have tried it numerous times over the last month or so and I have used IE and Firefox.
