Howard Kurtz / Washington Post:
Some Readers See Red Over Post.com's New Blogger  —  The Washington Post Co.'s Web operation has touched off an online furor by hiring as a blogger a 24-year-old former Bush administration aide who co-founded a conservative site and recently referred to Coretta Scott King as a "communist."

THE DOMENECH DEBACLE  —  I just got home from Pittsburgh and am late heading out the door for the Abdul Rahman event in D.C., but I can't let this blog sit silent about the plagiarism debacle now engulfing young conservative Ben Domenech, the Washington Post's "Red America" blogger.
Erick / redstate.org:
We Must Defend.  —  It's true.  Ben Domenech is Augustine.  And I stand behind him 100%.  He has said nothing filled with racism or hate, or bigotry.  In fact, Ben has been a leader in keeping those he dubs the "evilcons" off RedState.  Unbeknownst to all of you, RedState continually self-polices …
Rick Moran / The American Thinker:
It appeared to be the beginning of something new and exciting for the mainstream press.  The Washington Post hired a conservative blogger ostensibly to give the view from the right on issues covered by the paper's news department.  The Post has proven it self innovative in other ways when it comes …
Hilzoy / Obsidian Wings:
Plagiarism  —  I really hadn't intended to write another post on puzzling things conservatives have recently said or done.  However, the story of Ben Domenech (aka Augustine)'s apparent plagiarism made me change my mind.  If you haven't seen it yet, here are some of the examples:
Elisabeth Bumiller / New York Times:
Bush Is Facing a Difficult Path on Immigration  —  WASHINGTON, March 23 — In the days before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, immigration policy was going to be President Bush's signature issue.  It was central to his thinking as the former governor of a border state, key to his relationship …

Stonewalling At Yale  —  Yesterday, Evan Maloney was on the Yale campus hoping to interview administrators and allow them to give a fuller accounting of their decision to admit an ex-Taliban official with very little previous education to the hallowed halls of one of America's elite universities.

Madeleine Albright / Los Angeles Times:
Good versus evil isn't a strategy  —  Bush's worldview fails to see that in the Middle East, power politics is the key.  —  THE BUSH administration's newly unveiled National Security Strategy might well be subtitled "The Irony of Iran."  Three years after the invasion of Iraq and the invention …
Associated Press:
Top Muslim clerics: Convert must die  —  Religious leaders urge courts to ignore West, hang Christian  —  KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Senior Muslim clerics are demanding that an Afghan man on trial for converting from Islam to Christianity be executed, warning that if the government caves …
Digby / Hullabaloo:
Media Contortionism  —  I have never been much for blog triumphalism.  Aside from being self-aggrandizing, it didn't seem to me to be particularly true that blogs would replace the mainstream media.  But I am actually beginning to think that what we know as the mainstream press might end up going the way of the Dodo bird after all.
Charles Krauthammer / Washington Post:
Of Course It's a Civil War  —  Today's big debate over Iraq seems to be: Is there or is there not a civil war?  Yes, say the defeatists, citing former prime minister Ayad Allawi, a man with an ax to grind against the current (elected) government, which excluded him.

STATE BANS ABSTINENCE PROGRAM  —  PROVIDENCE - Rhode Island education officials have banned from public schools a federally funded abstinence program that civil rights advocates said embraced sexist stereotypes and included a voluntary student health survey that violated privacy laws.
Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
Back when I first arrived in Washington, almost eight years ago now, one of the big bugaboos on the right was the claim that key US ports and strategic facilities were being handed over to companies controlled by or linked to the People's Liberation Army, the armed forces of China.
The Ugly American / The Real Ugly American.com:
Pundit In Chief: An Interview with Fred Barnes  —  Well I am a day late but here is "The big story" I was working on.  Yesterday I was very honored to have the opportunity to speak for a bout 45 minutes with Fred Barnes (whose notable work will be detailed in just a moment) about his new book Rebel in Chief.

Challenge for U.S.: Iraq's Handling of Detainees  —  CAMP JUSTICE, Iraq — The blindfolded detainees in the dingy hallway line up in groups of five for their turn to see a judge, like schoolchildren outside the principal's office.  —  Each meeting lasts a few minutes.
