Time, CNN reinstate columnist Fareed Zakaria after suspension for apparent plagiarism

Time magazine and CNN are reinstating columnist Fareed Zakaria after a review of his work following an admission that he plagiarized parts of a New Yorker article in a Time column.

“We have completed a thorough review of each of Fareed Zakaria’s columns for Time, and we are entirely satisfied that the language in question in his recent column was an unintentional error and an isolated incident for which he has apologized,” a Time spokeswoman said in a statement.

“We look forward to having Fareed’s thoughtful and important voice back in the magazine with his next column in the issue that comes out on Sept. 7.”
