    Gun Control Article in Time Magazine is Plagiarized

    Fareed Zakaria gives us yet another reason why he is a steaming pile. He can't even come up with his own gun control arguments, he has to copy someone else's word for word apparently.

    Zakaria suspended for copying other writer's work - Yahoo! News

    NEW YORK (AP) Columnist and TV host Fareed Zakaria has apologized for lifting several paragraphs by another writer for use in his column in Time magazine. His column has been suspended for a month.

    Zakaria said in a statement Friday he made "a terrible mistake," adding, "It is a serious lapse and one that is entirely my fault."

    In a separate statement, Time spokesman Ali Zelenko said the magazine accepts Zakaria's apology, but would suspend his column for one month, "pending further review."

    "What he did violates our own standards for our columnists, which is that their work must not only be factual but original; their views must not only be their own but their words as well," Zelenko said.

    Media reporters had noted similarities between passages in Zakaria's column about gun control that appeared in Time's Aug. 20 issue, and paragraphs from an article by Harvard University history professor Jill Lepore published in April in The New Yorker magazine.

    In Zakaria's column, titled "The Case for Gun Control," he began one paragraph with the sentences: "Adam Winkler, a professor of constitutional law at UCLA, documents the actual history in 'Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America.' Guns were regulated in the U.S. from the earliest years of the Republic."

    A corresponding passage in Lenore's New Yorker essay, titled "Battleground America," begins: "As Adam Winkler, a constitutional-law scholar at U.C.L.A., demonstrates in a remarkably nuanced new book, 'Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America,' firearms have been regulated in the United States from the start."

    In Zakaria's statement, he apologized "unreservedly" to Lepore, as well as to his editors and readers.

    Besides serving as an editor-at-large at Time, Zakaria is a Washington Post columnist and the host of CNN's foreign-affairs show, "GPS."

    It's official, they have nothing else and nothing new to say and they have given up generating new "studies".

    They never said anything about them being the correct facts!

    i will be interested to see what Time has to say about this in their next issue.

    the anti gun elements have never been know for the integrity of their scholarship, nor their adherence to the truth. (in other words, they make things up and they lie.) but, and i say this in all seriousness, those are GOOD tactics when virtually all the facts and all the evidence (read, "the truth") support the other side.

    you've heard the law school saying: "if the facts are on your side, pound the facts. if the law is on your side, pound the law." and if neither is on your side, lie. or in this case, plagiarize.

    All the same arguments for gun control have been used ad nauseaum. They didn't work then, they don't work now. Plagiarizing just saves a liberal thought process.
