That was fast!

It only took four days for the Washington Post to drop the Red America blog, because of allegations that Ben Domenech had plagarized others works in some of his writings.

"Ben Domenech Resigns" is the current headline, with an explaination from the editor, Jim Brady on the controversy and resignation.

The funny thing about this is that someone like Ben should have been the easiest guy in the world to check out before they hired him. Go to blogsearch.google.com, and check out his name. The left evidently did, because they hit the paper with tons of e-mails and comments about the blog, and about Ben.

I hope they don't give up on the idea of the blog, though. It was a good idea, poorly executed that has a place in their paper, if nothing else as a counter weight to Froomkin's "Bash Bush" blog. (I know that's not the name, but read it).

Howard Kurtz at the Post has more up on the allegations and some of Ben's explainations.

Thats too bad. And I agree that they shouldn't give up on the idea of the blog.

As usual, appreciate the linkie luv and it's been returned as is our policy.

Glad to see you read Jet's posts, too... she's great, and thought provoking, of course - agree or disagree - either way.

Same goes for this blog, bro. I can't tell you how refreshing your platform is - conservative in many ways, yet liberal in others.... very independent of the "lemmings'" "dead man walking" / "drink the conservative kool-aid" line of thought.

Yes, you lean to the right, but you are obviously an American first, party-liner last.... gotta love it.

Blog ON, brother...

LMC, it is too bad, but I guess it'll give the Kos kids something to scream about for a while.

GTL- Idiot's are idiots, I don't care about their ideology :) Jet wrote a nice piece, and the title cracked me up.

I don't think folks should drink any parties kool-aid.

Darn, I'm away from the internet one day and I'm so behind. Too bad, this looked like a good idea.
