<p>I'm impressed that Zakari has taken such a huge hit for the team.</p> <p>Plagerism in journalism is to be taken very seriously. Yet Zakaria merely gets a slap on the wrist, a one month "<a href="http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/08/fareed-zakaria-time-plagiarism.php">suspension</a>"</p> <p><b>And that is justified</b>. Because he <b>didn't</b> blatantly copy another journalists' work without proper attribution.</p> <p><i>Far worse.</i></p> <p>He didn't take the time to re-write the talking points handed to him. He just cut and pasted the same lines Jill Lepore of the New Yorker had been asked to propagate.</p> <p>This is how the media works. They are equally bought and paid for as the politicians that own <i>them</i>.</p> <p>It's all PR, Its all a big game, a big club. And in the words of <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5Ujn2UxTcY">George Carlin</a>. You Aren't In It.</p>
