CNN Lifts Suspension of Fareed Zakaria
Host to return to 'GPS' Aug. 26 after apologizing for plagiarism
By Andrea Morabito -- Broadcasting & Cable, 8/16/2012 5:41:47 PMafter the network suspended him last Friday for plagiarizing another writer's work in his TIME column that was repurposed on CNN.com.
"CNN has completed its internal review of Fareed Zakaria's work for CNN, including a look back at his Sunday programs, documentaries, and CNN.com blogs. The process was rigorous. We found nothing that merited continuing the suspension," the network said in a statement Thursday. "Zakaria has apologized for a journalistic lapse. CNN and Zakaria will work together to strengthen further the procedures for his show and blog."
Zakaria's public affairs program Fareed Zakaria GPS will resume on Sunday, Aug. 26.
