Time Magazine Writer Suspended for Copying Another Person’s Work
Respected columnist and television host Fareed Zakaria is apologizing profusely for an error that could cost him a chunk of his reputation. Zakaria has been accused of copying text for his Time Magazine column out of an article written by Jill Lepore in the April issue of The New Yorker Magazine.
Zakaria has been suspended by Time until the situation can be reviewed. Although the host has taken responsibility for what he did, he doesn’t seem to have a readily-available explanation. He has made it clear that it was a “terrible mistake” and that it was entirely his fault.
The article focused on the issue of gun control. There had been several media outlets reporting similarities between the two articles, leading to the suspension. In addition to his work with Time Magazine, Zakaria is a Washington Post columnist and the host of CNN’s foreign-affairs show, “GPS.”
