Amid allegations of plagiarism, Ben Domenech resigned his blog, Red America, at the Washington Post today.
For the last several years, Ben’s been a close friend of mine, and has offered counsel, humor and help that I have appreciated on many levels. However, if the allegations are true, and the research done by many in the blogosphere seems to conclude that they are, then Ben has made the right decision. The Post deserves a voice free of controversy and the pall of scandal, even though I believe that Ben would have done an excellent job in that capacity.
