When Fareed Zakaria was caught copying!
Indian-American journalist Fareed Zakaria is famous for his blog, and TV show- GPS (Global Public Square), which is broadcasted on CNN international. I never read his blog posts or stories, but watched his TV show once. I found Fareed’s recent report on Indian politics as biased and completely in favor of Congress party. Why not? I mean, let’s not forget the fact that his father Rafiq Zakaria was Congress Party’s MP / MLA from Maharashtra and was considered close to Indira Gandhi.
His report was misguiding, he was openly supporting the corrupt congress govt. He also termed the opposition party ‘BJP’ as communal and suggested that the Congress is not able to pass key Bills in the Parliament due to Anna Hazare and BJP’s protests against corruption. I wonder why is CNN broadcasting his show? He is openly misguiding people around the world.

Fareed was recently accused of plagiarism. He lifted some paragraphs for his Time magazine’s story from an article published in the New Yorker magazine. A famous American news channel revealed that Fareed does not write all his stories alone, he has a staff of around 10 writers working under him. Someone out of his staff copied the entire article from the New Yorker magazine and published it without making any changes!
Experts suggest that Fareed’s writer was just trying to get inspired, and write the article again in his own words, but published the wrong copy! Fareed Zakaria’s career was in trouble because of this incident, CNN and Time magazine suspended him for around 2 weeks and conducted an inquiry on him. This incident also exposed the fact that writers who claim to be writers are not really writers!
Look at his face! Doesn’t he look like Mr. Bean?
