Wash. Post Conservative Blogger Resigns Amid Plagiarism Allegations
Update: Ben Domenech issues a real apology. It seems sincere and complete. Good for him.
The liberal blogosphere went into full attack mode this week when the Washington Post hired conservative, partisan blogger Ben Domenech to write a blog for its online website. Bloggers uncovered numerous instances in which the 24 year old Domenech appears to have plagiarized material when writing for his college paper and in one instance, NRO, the blog of the National Review.
Domenech has now resigned. WaPo editor Jim Brady writes:
An investigation into these allegations was ongoing, and in the interim, Domenech has resigned, effective immediately.
When we hired Domenech, we were not aware of any allegations that he had plagiarized any of his past writings. In any cases where allegations such as these are made, we will continue to investigate those charges thoroughly in order to maintain our journalistic integrity.
