Washington Post Blogger Quits Amid Allegations of Plagiarism



The Washinton Post reports that one of its blogger recently resigned amid allegations that he previously plagiarized content.

Jim Brady, executive editor of Washingtonpost.com, which operates independently from the newspaper, said he would have dismissed Domenech if the former Bush administration aide and Republican Senate staffer had not offered to quit first. He said there was “enough smoke” in the allegations of plagiarism “that we needed to sever the relationship.”

Not good in light of all the current efforts to ensure bloggers give credit to story sources.
