Fareed Zakaria Didn't Plagerize Anything!
By Adam Curry on Saturday, August 11, 2012 at 3:48 PM.

I'm impressed that Zakari has taken such a huge hit for the team. permalink

Plagerism in journalism is to be taken very seriously. Yet Zakaria merely gets a slap on the wrist, a one month "suspension" permalink

And that is justified. Because he didn't blatantly copy another journalists' work without proper attribution. permalink

Far worse. permalink

He didn't take the time to re-write the talking points handed to him. He just cut and pasted the same lines Jill Lepore of the New Yorker had been asked to propagate. permalink

This is how the media works. They are equally bought and paid for as the politicians that own them. permalink

It's all PR, Its all a big game, a big club. And in the words of George Carlin. You Aren't In It. permalink
