Fareed Zakaria resigns from Yale Corporation 'to focus on core work'
Washington, Aug. 22 (ANI): Indian-American journalist Fareed Zakaria has resigned from the Yale Corporation.
In a letter to Yale President Richard Levin, Zakaria cited the need to focus 'on the core of my work' following his recent admission of plagiarism.
"My service at Yale is the single largest commitment of time, energy, and attention outside of my writing and television work," Zakaria wrote in the letter to Levin.
"The work of the Yale Corporation needs and deserves such attention, but I simply do not have the capacity to do it and keep up with my main professional obligations," Politico quoted Zakaria, as saying.
According to the report, earlier this month, Zakaria had admitted to and apologized for plagiarizing a paragraph in The New Yorker for his own column in Time Magazine.
Both Time and CNN temporarily suspended Zakaria, but later decided that his error did not deserve further punishment. He has resumed work with both organisations, the report said.
In an interview with The New York Times, Zakaria said the plagiarism scandal had: "Made me realize what is at the core of what I want to do".
"Other things will have to go away," he said, adding: "There's got to be some stripping down." (ANI)
