Breitbart Takes Times’ Sloppy Seconds

randpaulWell, well, well, looks like Rand Paul will take his weekly column to a new home that values his unique brand of journalistic integrity. Just hours after he was dropped by the Washington Times, Sen. Paul (R-KY) has been picked up by Breitbart News. In an article that seemed blithely unaware of any “plagiarism scandal” that might have marred the good Senator’s name, Editor-in-Chief Alexander Marlow welcomed Paul to the site and called him “an avowed reformer.”

In the piece, a Paul spokesman said the Senator was “pleased to partner with Breitbart News and looks forward to the new, wider audience for his columns.” Marlow likewise suggested that the move would help expand Paul’s voice, claiming that Breitbart.com “has surpassed websites such as Politico, the Daily Beast, and The Washington Times, according to web traffic analytics firm Alexa.”

Hm, well at least we can all agree that this is a move Andrew Breitbart himself would be pleased with. As to whether it helps Rand Paul move past this scandal, we’ll just have to see.
