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.

Who Is ‘Rand Black’? An NJ Mystery

Each weekday morning NJ‘s Communications Director Ben Fishel sends out an email blast with links to the magazine’s top reads. In the subject line is a short summary of what’s in the email.

“Whom Does the Colbert Bump, Bump? GOP Adopts Buzzfeed Model, What Ails American Politics? and More” is an example of a normal subject line to one of Fishel’s emails. Tuesday morning’s email from Fishel, however, contained an anomaly. “Obama’s Budget Plan, Can Rand Black Attract Black Voters? CNN Revives Crossfire, And More,” it said, emphasis added.

Who is Rand Black?

A link in the email went to a story on Sen. Rand Paul‘s (R-Ky.) upcoming speech at Howard University, a historically black college. Presumably, that’s the story the subject was referencing.

In an email, Fishel confirmed that “Rand Black” was a mistake and that he was “in the middle of issuing a correction.”
