Does Deb Have A Domenech Problem?

We wouldn’t normally go for something like this, but given the Post’s recent plagiarism issues with Ben Domenech, it was too good to pass up:

The American Prospect’s Garance Franke-Ruta writing on TAPPED (March 23): “People at the Post like to make distinctions between the print publication and the online site, but that’s not how readers experience the paper. To most readers, the Post is the Post is the Post. It’s all one thing, and they expect one standard from it.”

The Post ombudsman Deborah Howell‘s column on Domenech (April 2): “All three Posts are under different management, but to most readers or listeners, The Post is The Post is The Post.”

Simple literary license or too close for comfort?

We report, you decide.
