Update on the Post’s Domenech
Ah, the truth surfaces; he’s a plagiarist:
- Washington Post Blogger Quits After Plagiarism Accusations
- A portrait of the blogger as a young plagiarist
Why anyone would think, in this day and age, that they can get away with something like this is beyond me. Especially when you’re as much a firebrand as Domenech is/was.
Here’s a bit of the right-wing flummery that I expect he would have produced had RedAmerica been able to continue:
“To my enemies: I take enormous solace in the fact that you spent this week bashing me, instead of America.” – from Red America Ends
So Domenech resigned. I understand thet the Post may hire another blogger to fill his place. Let’s hope that
- The Post vets their new candidate a little more thoroughly.
- They hire an opinion columnist from the left to balance the scales.
