After a leave that turned out to just be a little over a week, The Huffington Post reinstated Amy Lee--the "over-aggregating" writer suspended by business editor Peter Goodman for lifting too much of Simon Dumenco's Ad Age article for her post. At the time, it seemed like the entire blogging internet either leapt to her defense or just pointed out, as Gawker did, that she was only doing what she was taught to do. Without much comment, a HuffPost spokesman emailed this to Romenesko today:
We have completed an internal review of the process and policies relating to the publication of stories on HuffPost, and are pleased to welcome Amy Lee back to our newsroom. We are confident in her abilities and look forward to her contributions.
