Cnn Reinstates Fareed Zakaria

CNN and corporate sibling Time magazine on Thursday reinstated Fareed Zakaria following the revelation that a paragraph of a recent commentary on gun control that he wrote seemed to have been plagiarized from an essay by journalist Jill Lepore in the New Yorker last April. CNN said that it had conducted a rigorous review of Zakaria's work on the cable news network and "found nothing that merited continuing the suspension." Nevertheless, it said, it will work with Zakaria "to strengthen further the procedures for his show and blog." Zakaria had admitted lifting Lepore's words for his commentary that appeared in the August 20 edition of Times and on his CNN blog. "I made a terrible mistake," he said last week. "It is a serious lapse and one that is entirely my fault. I apologize unreservedly to her, to my editors at Time , and to my readers."
