Former Buzzfeed Viral Politics editor Benny Johnson, who was fired in July for multiple instances of plagiarism, has certainly rebounded quickly: Playbook reports he'll start on Monday as National Review's social media director.

Rich Lowry, editor of National Review, spoke to Playbook's Mike Allen about the decision to hire Johnson:

"Benny made a terrible mistake. But he has owned up to it and learned from it. He's a talented journalist, with obviously a lot to contribute. He knows he's joining a storied institution at NR, and we look forward to his helping us carry on our mission across all platforms."

Playbook adds that Johnson's "youthful digital fluency" and "red-state instincts" likely added to National Review's ability to look past his 41 counts of plagiarism.

A few of Johnson's former coworkers have taken to Twitter to congratulate him on the good news:

Johnson's eagerness to join National Review should, of course, come as no surprise: the conservative publication is one of the dozens of online sources from which he plagiarized.
