Fareed Zakaria GPS

(In brief - Fareed Zakaria has been suspended by Time Magazine and CNN for lifting some material in a column he wrote for Time Magazine which also appeared on CNN.com)
I'm kind of in two minds about this - I do appreciate Fareed Zakaria's show. Until Newsroom International it was the ONLY source for proper international news on CNN Domestic, and when I'm at home I do like to watch it on CNN International. However, what he did was wrong. For a high-level, respected journalist, this represents a major error of judgement.

However, following this embarrasment, I have no reason to watch Zakaria's show ever again, on CNN or elsewhere. Apology is not enough. In fact, it sounds cynical. He stole something on purpose and was quite aware of what he was doing.
It's completely unimaginable CNN could afford keeping a program bearing his name anymore. I'm surprised he is only suspended as of now. I'm even more surprised Time magazine "accepted" his apology. He should have been fired. Or at least, since Time Warner is obviously giving him an opportunity to make a move himself, he should have resigned immediately. That form of mea culpa would preserve at least a tiny bit of his credibility. I'm afraid it's a bit too late for that now.
