Time, CNN lift Zakaria's suspension
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Washington, Aug 17: The Time magazine and CNN today lifted the suspension of Fareed Zakaria, the noted Indian-American writer and journalist, who was suspended last week by both outlets for alleged plagiarism.
Following a review of the allegations of plagiarism, for which Zakaria has apologized, CNN and Time in separate statements termed it as a "journalistic lapse" and unintentional error and announced that his popular column and the Sunday talk show would now resume.
"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," Time's statement read.
"Fareed Zakaria's quality journalism, insightful mind and thoughtful voice meaningfully contribute to the dialogue on global and political issues.
"His public affairs program GPS will return on Sunday, August 26 on CNN-International," CNN said.
