8. Fareed Zakaria Suspended for Plagiarism

Time magazine and CNN suspended prominent Indian American journalist Fareed Zakaria , their columnist and television host, after he apologized for plagiarizing sections of his column in the Aug 20 issue of Time.

His article "The Case for Gun Control" carried some passages similar to an article published in ‘The New Yorker’ by staff writer Jill Lepore, on guns in America. NewsBusters, a conservative Web site found out the resemblance and spread it across the Internet.

Zakaria's suspension was revoked by Time and CNN after one week, following an apology by him. Zakaria said he was apologetic for his " terrible mistake...This week has been very important because it has made me realize what is at the core of what I want to do."

Fareed started his journalistic career as the managing editor of Foreign Affairs magazine in 1992 and went on to take charge as the editor of Newsweek International in the year 2000. Later he moved to TIME magazine as a contributing editor and columnist.
