There’s quite a bit of Twitter speculation tonight regarding Fareed Zakaria’s suspension from both Time and CNN for plagiarism. Many have suggested that Zakaria’s column might have been the work of an assistant or intern.
Fareed Zakaria is the least likely plagiarist ever. Hoping there’s some explanation, even if not 100% satisfactory.—

The thing about the Fareed Zakaria scandal is, it's worse for him to admit that an intern made the mistake not him. Sad, but true.—

Love that people are assuming an intern is at fault for Zakaria's plagiarism. Folks, it's his byline, his responsibility.—
