Time, CNN suspend Fareed Zakaria for plagiarism
[Iran Press TV] Time magazine and CNN have suspended columnist and TV host Fareed Zakaria for plagiarizing several paragraphs from another writer and using them in one of his columns in Time.
In a statement issued on Friday, Zakaria, 48, said he made "a terrible mistake," adding, "It is a serious lapse and one that is entirely my fault,"
The News Agency that Dare Not be Named reported.
| Yes. This is why it is important to feed and exercise one's conscience in one's youth, that it will be strong and alive until one hits one's dotage, as Mr. Zakaria has clearly done. |
Time front man Ali Zelenko said in a separate statement that the magazine accepted Zakaria's apology but would suspend his column for one month, "pending further review," and CNN said it had also suspended him for his journalistic lapse.
