Time magazine and CNN suspended columnist and TV host Fareed Zakaria on Friday after he acknowledged that he plagiarized sections of another writer’s article about gun control.


Terrible mistake on Fareed's part to which he has now offered an apology to Lepore. Time has suspended him for a month "pending journalistic" review

Cause the anti gun crowd isn't know for critical thinking skills no one from CNN or the TImes both known for their leftists view gave it a second thought only matter because they got caught.

Anti gun lets lie and make it look like they give a crap.by "suspending" Zakaria.

Stuff happens when you get lazy and don't do your own work.

All I gotta say is, please don't let the replacement be Geraldo Rivera!

Oh what a loser. My college is whacking us over the head about this, several times per term, in each course. It's the most heavily repeated and emphasized thing by a wide margin.

.....and what he did wasn't even creative. I would have failed a whole course if I'd done that in English or Public Speaking, for instance. I MIGHT have been expelled. They are dead serious, even in school. Wow.... That's one way to tarnish and perhaps lose the peak of a career. For what? He probably saved a few minutes...maybe 30 over actually drawing sources and making something entirely his own.

Thats one expensive few minutes. I hope it was worth it.

This has been long overdue. He's just a paid mouthpiece for the Council on Foreign Relations anyway.

CNN needs to can almost the entire network, put HLN back on the rotating 30 minute "this is the news" format, and rebuild regular CNN around Wolf Blitzer, Sanjay Gupta, and Anderson Cooper, but even Anderson has been more than a little off putting lately.

Dump Piers Morgan immediately, and admit that he can't replace Larry King. Dump Nancy Grace immediately, I don't know how this woman has an outlet on a "news" network.

I bet he is "one of those guys"...

You know...

The ones who get an "education" by way of reduced standards, abbreviated degrees, and accelerated promotions.

All that luscious stuff that results in the "par baked" phony baloney over-educated class of intelligentsia.
