Blogger Gotcha

Who's Sorry Now?

Ok. So far the blogosphere has been effectively used to counter MSM facts, missteps, etc. Then the Washington Post hired this RedState blogger for a conservative view for the paper. Whatever. Now the liberal bloggers are all over him and the Post in gotcha postings about potential plagarism: (here)

Late yesterday, the liberal Web sites Daily Kos and Atrios posted examples of what appeared to be instances of plagiarism from Domenech's writing at the William & Mary student paper. Three sentences of a 1999 Domenech review of a Martin Scorsese film were identical to a review in Salon magazine, and several sentences in Domenech's piece on a James Bond movie closely resembled one in the Internet Movie Database. Domenech said he needed to research the examples but that he never used material without attribution and had complained about a college editor improperly adding language to some of his articles. Domenech is a board member and one of three founders. (WaPo here)
