CNN Suspends Fareed Zakaria for Copying Writer's Work
Network follows 'TIME' in sidelining host after he apologizes for lifting passages in a column
By Andrea Morabito -- Broadcasting & Cable, 8/10/2012 6:29:08 PM
"We have reviewed Fareed Zakaria's TIME column, for which he has apologized," the network said in a statement Friday. "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."
Earlier on Friday, TIME suspended Zakaria for a month for violating the magazine's standards after he apologized for using the work of Jill Lepore in The New Yorker for a column of his on gun control.
Zakaria hosts Fareed Zakaria GPS on Sundays at 10 a.m. on CNN.
