Washington Post to Balance Blogs

The protests by the liberal blogosphere over the Washington Post’s hiring of Ben Domenech has had an effect per this report from Raw Story. Liberals were upset that the Washington Post considered the hiring of a far right partisan such as Domenech to be a way of balancing a liberal columnist. Domenech used his position to spread right wing hatred of traditional American principles (even claiming his extremist views represented the majority), making his blog a poor balance to a liberal columnist who followed established principles of fair journalism. Raw Story reports that they have been informed by the Washinton Post’s ombudsman that the Post will be hiring both a liberal and a conservative blogger, this time attempting to provide true balance.
