Conservative Plagiarists

Another conservative non-college graduate plagiarist The trend continues.
Despite the pattern of plagiarized articles, Domenech still maintains that he did not knowingly use other people's writing without attribution. He said most of the allegations, from his time at the William & Mary student paper, were from his freshman year, and that while he believes the unattributed material was inserted by his editor, he cannot prove it. "When I was 17, I was certainly sloppy," said Domenech, who did not graduate from college. "If I had paid more attention, none of these problems would have happened."


He even plagiarized the Washington Post who hired him. I suppose checking clips is unnecessary at this level. They never seem to graduate from college like Deutsch at NASA, yet land high level journalism jobs while I can't get even an entry level reporter job at any paper in the country.

Sucks, eh? Why not apply for an internet writing job? I've seen a lot of positions that require a BA.

Yes it sucks. They may require a BA but they don't lend much credence to it when combined with non-published books. Or by itself for that matter without connections and bigger clips than I compiled at the newspaper on campus. If it's Internet only, there usually is little to no money. I'm as close to getting an agent as that. Tough biz.
