What Hacks Me Off

My friend and former occasional roommate Ben gets a blog at the Washington Post. He’s a brilliant writer and a conservative. The blogs at the opposite end of the political spectrum have gone nuts smearing him and his family because of this gig.

Do they really think WaPo Online is their personal playground?


But Ben can no doubt handle the heat.

  • I do not know Ben or his writings, but I emailed the Washington Post and told them to keep him posting! I told them that free speech is needed, not censorship.

  • If he’s a plagiarist, he should be fired. If not, keep him on. Is this considered “fair and balanced”?
