On The WaPo's Newest Blogger

The big picture about the importance of MSM hiring young conservative writers of talent is laid out with clarity by David Mastio over at Real Clear Politics. It explains why the Post was quite right to hire someone like Ben Domenech to be proprietor of its newest blog.

But Rick Moran (brother of ABC's Terry Moran, incidentally) levels some pretty serious charges of plagiarism against Domenech at The American Thinker.

It should be noted that Moran sources the charges to a Kos diarist (not the most reliable source, if you ask me). Likewise, some of the linked stories that Domenech is alleged to have plagiarised aren't dated, that I can see -- so it's not immediately apparent who copied whom.

Even so, for the sake of his credibility and the Post's, it seems appropriate that someone respond to these charges, so that Mr. Domenech can be cleared of all wrongdoing if the facts warrant it.

Oh, no looks as though Ben Domenech has been less then honest in his writing. He has been caught in a plagiarism scandal. This just makes me sick that one of the good guys has made all conservatives look like liars.

The link to American Thinker is bad: just goes back to the Real Clear Politics article. Here is the correct link.
