Online critics have accused author, Time editor and CNN GPS host Fareed Zakaria of copying from a New Yorker article about gun control. Below, we’ve created a Storify timeline linking to key articles about the debate.
UPDATE: Zakaria has been suspended at Time and CNN while the allegations are being investigated. He published this apology: “Media reporters have pointed out that paragraphs in my Time column on gun control, which was also a topic of conversation on this blog, bear close similarities to paragraphs in Jill Lepore’s essay in the April 23rd issue of The New Yorker. They are right. I made a terrible mistake. It is a serious lapse and one that is entirely my fault. I apologize unreservedly to her, to my editors at Time and CNN, and to my readers and viewers everywhere.”
Time gave Atlantic Wire this official statement: “Time takes any accusation of plagiarism by any of our journalists very seriously, and we will carefully examine the facts before saying anything else on the matter.”
