MEDIA: Why Does The Washington Times Care About Traffic Cameras?

The Oculus has a theory as to why The Washington Times has such extensive coverage of the debate over D.C. traffic cameras. It's because it is very likely that many Washington Times editors, reporters and corporate staff (maybe even Rev. Moon) have received speeding tickets in the mail from the traffic cameras on New York Avenue. The Washington Times offices are located near the interchange of New York and South Dakota avenues.

Can't Rev. Moon afford better editorial office space closer to where news actually happens? Imagine what would happen if the slots super center would go in at New York Avenue and Bladensburg Road? Would the Times push that because it would inject some life into their corner of the District or would they deride the slots effort over political/moral grounds?
