(Reuters) - Time magazine and CNN said on Thursday they were reinstating journalist Fareed Zakaria after suspending him last week for plagiarism.
Time said in a statement that it believed Zakaria made an "unintentional error" in what was an "isolated incident" in a recent column on gun control for the magazine that he took from another writer.
"We look forward to having Fareed's thoughtful and important voice back in the magazine with his next column in the issue that comes out on September 7," Time said in a statement.
Cable news channel CNN said that after a thorough internal review of Zakaria's work on his Sunday TV shows, blogs and documentaries, "we found nothing that merited continuing the suspension."

That’ll show him!
I imagine that’s why Fareed came to America. He’s a minority. He can get away with murder and the white boys are afraid to do anything to him. Lots of lawyers in America. Can you say discrimination lawsuit?
After all, if a Democrat plagiarist can become VP of the country, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense anymore to hold THIS leftist freak accountable.....
...and just wait until Romney is president and Tommy Thompson is senator, then the conservatives will be...unrepresented.
For the propaganda these left-wing outlets spew out, it’s almost encouraged or considered a good career move to be a horrible journalist-that is unless you’re a conservative!
“We don’t care that he copied the story. We’re all on the same side, here, and the ‘plagiarism’ issue has just gone down the memory hole.”

What does it take to get fired at CNN?
How is using someone else’s writings, and passing them off as your own, an “unintentional” act?
Bring a Chick-Fil-A lunch to work.
Plagiarism needs to be punished.
Pray for America
It’s okay for self-styled “progressives” to steal: the goal justifies any and all means.
Did CAIR intervene? Inquiring minds want to know.
“Plagiarism needs to be punished.”
Joe Biden, Lawrence Tribe, Ted Kennedy, Elizabeth Warren. Fareed is in good company.
Sounds like the Middle East share holders made a phone call.
Maybe Fareed can do lunch with Joe Biden & Doris Kerns Goodwin? They all have lifted lines from others smarter than themselves and their careers have continued to flourish. Liberals have no standards at all.
And anyway, it was Time Magazine. No one even read it. And if CNN’s report hadn’t been helpfully re-broadcast by Jim Robinson, no one would have heard he was reinstated either.
The only thing more pointless than being published by Time is being published by Newsweek. They don’t have the readership of your average blog.
