NewsBusters: We Love Aren't Too Bothered by Plagiarism!
Topic: NewsBusters
Note to Greg Sheffield: Your claim that "Washington Post editors have proven that indeed they take orders from liberal activists, as they cave in to left-wing pressure to fire Ben Domenec [sic] as their first conservative blogger" would hold more water if you didn't work for an organization that takes orders from conservative activists and the Bush White House. (Case in point: NewsBusters' embrace of the Bush-approved term "terrorist surveillance program.")

We also noticed, Greg, that you make no mention of Domenech's long history of plagiarism, which the Post cited as the reason for parting ways with him. Does this mean that you condone plagiarism? Or just that conservatives should be exempt from facing consequences for their ethical transgressions?

UPDATE: Tim Graham, unlike Sheffield, does concede that Domenech's leaving is "probably for the best, considering the plagiarism examples liberals unearthed against him." Then he launched into Sheffield territory, claiming the the Post was "more than deferential to the left-wing bloggers that swarm around his site like angry killer bees."

It is rather humorous how Graham and Sheffield are downplaying or ignoring completely the plagiarism aspect and rushing to trot out the conservative-victim card.
