“CNN, Time Magazine Suspend Fareed Zakaria For Plagiarism”
Oh is this funny or what? One of the liberal media’s darlings has been plagiarizing others work. LOL! I’m laughing myself off my chair.
“3rd Update: CNN has suspended Zakaria indefinitely, and say he plagiarized the same article in a CNN blog post:
We have reviewed Fareed Zakaria’s TIME column, for which he has apologized. He wrote a shorter blog post on CNN.com on the same issue which included similar unattributed excerpts. That blog post has been removed and CNN has suspended Fareed Zakaria while this matter is under review.
Judging from the reaction on Twitter, Zakaria was not a man with many friends in media. No one’s saying, “Nice guy who made a mistake.” If anything, media figures are taking some pleasure from Zakaria’s fall — which is a very big deal.
This second act of plagiarism might plunge the tarnished star to Dan Rather/KeithOlbermann-ville.
***2nd Update: Time Magazine suspends Zakaria ‘”pending further review“:
TIME accepts Fareed’s apology, but what he did violates our own standards for our columnists, which is that their work must not only be factual but original; their views must not only be their own but their words as well. As a result, we are suspending Fareed’s column for a month, pending further review.
I suspect we will hear from CNN shortly.”
