TIME magazine is suspending Fareed Zakaria's column for one month after the writer was accused of plagiarizing a New Yorker essay on gun control. Zakaria apologized for lifting the language. In a statement, TIME said:
TIME accepts Fareed's apology, but 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. As a result, we are suspending Fareed's column for a month, pending further review.
