Yale May Reconsider Ties To Fareed Zakaria, University Trustee, After Plagiarism Charges

Yale may reconsider its relationship with Fareed Zakaria, a trustee of the university, after the Time editor-at-large and CNN host was suspended for plagiarism.

Zakaria apologized for borrowing from a New Yorker piece by Jill Lepore for his work in Time and CNN.com. Both places suspended him for a month on Friday for failing to properly attribute.

On Friday, Yale University president Richard Levin also told the Yale Daily News that he was planning to meet with the Yale Corporation Committee on Trusteeship to figure out how to respond to Zakaria's ethical lapse.

Levin said the issue was one "which we take very seriously.” Zakaria was named a successor trustee of the Yale Corporation in 2006, and graduated from the college in 1986.
