ISO conservative blogger — activists and former activists need not apply

Ben Domenech, hired by the Washington Post to start a conservative blog, has resigned in response to substantial allegations of plagarism with respect to his past work, in particular a movie review he wrote for NRO. Jim Brady who runs WashingtonPost.com says he will replace Domenech with another conservative blogger, but this time is looking for “someone with a more traditional journalism background.” Brady’s comments suggest that the imposition of that “qualification” is more closely related to criticism from the left about Domenech’s experience in Republican politics than to the issue of plagiarism.
