As you all probably know by now, Ben Domenich, everybody's favorite right-wing homeschooled college dropout, has "resigned" from the WP. The Moral of Box Turtle Ben, at least where the US media is concerned? Appeasing Nazis Doesn't Work. Just ask Neville Chamberlain.
Brady's piece is interesting. All of the instances of plagiarism are "allegations" "under investigation." There's no mention of Domenech's extremism or anything about how he got the gig as against, say, someone competent.
In other words, according to Jim Brady, none of this actually quite happened.
Someone at senior levels has to be mulling over their decision to hire Brady. If they're not, they're about to lose their newspaper.
