Zakaria will cover “pressing world matters and culture”, and his work will appear both in the magazine and on, according to Atlantic Media:

“As part of this new relationship, he will write for The Atlantic as well as participate in events for both AtlanticLIVE and Quartz, Atlantic Media’s global business news brand. His first outing will be with Quartz’s flagship The Next Billion: A Connected World Conference in New York in November.”

Fareed Zakaria apologized to viewers for plagiarism as he returned to his CNN show “GPS” on Sunday:

A final personal note. As some of you know, two weeks ago, I wrote a column in Time Magazine and neglected to quote a New Yorker essay by Jill Lepore that I drew closely from.

I was not trying to pass the work off as my own. I prominently cited the book, “Gun Fight” by Adam Winkler that contained all the historical data that both Lepore and I wrote about it, but I absolutely should have quote[d] or cited the New Yorker essay as well.

Former Newsweek editor says his writing appeared under Zakaria’s byline

The New York Observer | The Atlantic | International Business Times
Former Newsweek senior editor Jerry Adler tells Daniel D’Addario he wrote a piece for the magazine that ran under Fareed Zakaria’s byline in 2010, an introduction “for a stand-alone commemorative issue on the environment pegged to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report.”

Knowing full well that the piece would go out under Mr. Zakaria’s name, the two-time National Magazine Award finalist says, he wrote the five-paragraph piece, never discussing it with the putative author. “He made some changes, maybe. But he didn’t say, ‘Do this and don’t tell anyone.’ It came to me through channels.”

Tony Emerson was managing editor of Newsweek International, which Zakaria edited. He tells D’Addario, “In team journalism there’s a lot of debates over who deserves the byline.… Read more


Zakaria explains plagiarism, resigns from Yale board to reduce load

The New York Times | New Haven Register
A plagiarism fracas has led Fareed Zakaria to decide “There’s got to be some stripping down,” he tells The New York Times’ Christine Haughney. He’ll get some air into his superhuman schedule by giving fewer speeches, lessening some of his board work.

Along the way to becoming one of the “favorite dinner companions of the power elite,” Haughney writes, Zakaria undertook too many extensions of his personal brand to give his writing as much attention as he’d like. In an interview in his CNN office, Zakaria offered an explanation for what happened, one that doesn’t involve him taking the fall for a ghostwriter or a research assistant screwing up.

The mistake, he said, occurred when he confused the notes he had taken about Ms.

Time, CNN reinstate Fareed Zakaria after plagiarism investigations

Time magazine has finished reviewing Fareed Zakaria’s columns after he lifted a few lines from a New Yorker story. The magazine is “entirely satisfied that the language in question in his recent column was an unintentional error and an isolated incident.” The column will resume Sept. 7.

The statement from Time spokeswoman Ali Zelenko:

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. 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 September 7.

CNN has also completed its review of Zakaria’s work and says he will return to his show, “GPS,” on Sunday, August 26.… Read more


Washington Post corrects story that said Fareed Zakaria lifted quote

The Daily Beast | Politico | Mother Jones | RedEye | The Huffington Post
The Washington Post has corrected a story that accused Fareed Zakaria of lifting a quote from author Clyde V. Prestowitz:

This story incorrectly states that in the initial hardcover edition of his 2008 book, “The Post-American World,” Fareed Zakaria failed to cite the source of a quote taken from another book. In fact, Zakaria did credit author Clyde V. Prestowitz.

The Post added this to the correction late Wednesday:

Endnotes crediting Prestowitz were contained in hardcover and paperback editions of Zakaria’s book. The Post should have examined copies of the books and should not have published the article. We regret the error and apologize to Fareed Zakaria.

Tuesday, The Post’s Paul Farhi reported (and I repeated) Clyde V.… Read more


Fareed Zakaria says many journalists don’t attribute quotations

The Atlantic
After Fareed Zakaria apologized last week for plagiarizing a couple of passages from a New Yorker article, reporters reminded Jeffrey Goldberg of an incident in 2009 in which Zakaria had used quotations from two of Goldberg’s stories without noting their source. Zakaria has now responded to Goldberg, arguing that what he did is common:

I think it is quite untrue that it is standard journalistic practice to name the interviewer when quoting from an interview. Look through the New Yorker, the New York Times, or any other prestigious publication and you will see that most quotes from interviews do NOT mention the name of the interviewer. This is a subject close to my heart since I interview people every Sunday. On Monday, we get clips of the papers, magazines, and blogs that quote from these interviews.

Fareed Zakaria: ‘People are piling on with every grudge or vendetta’

The Washington Post | The Daily Beast | The Panic Virus | The Washington Post | American Thinker | The Atlantic | The Huffington Post | The Boston Globe
Fareed Zakaria’s Washington Post column has been suspended for a month. He tells Paul Farhi, “People are piling on with every grudge or vendetta” now that Time and CNN have suspended him for plagiarism.

Example: Clyde V. Prestowitz charged that Zakaria didn’t correctly attribute a quote in the 2008 edition of “The Post-American World” that came from Prestowitz’s book. Zakaria tpld Farhi that charge was “totally bogus.” And on Wednesday, Zakaria was proven correct on this point; David Frum posted images and PDFs from the book that show Zakaria cited Prestowitz. The Post appended a correction to its piece and apologized for the error.… Read more
