The Time magazine and CNN today lifted the suspension of noted Indian-American writer and journalist Fareed Zakaria, who had admitted to plagiarism, saying that it was an "unintentional error".
Following a review of the allegations of plagiarism, for which Zakaria has apologised, CNN and Time in separate statements said that his suspension has been lifted.
This comes a day after The Washington Post apologised to Zakaria after the daily wrongly accused him of another instance of plagiarism.
CNN and Time announced that his popular column and the Sunday talk show would now resume.
"We have completed a thorough review of each of Fareed Zakaria's columns for Time and we are entirely satisfied that the language in question in his recent column was an unintentional error and an isolated incident for which he has apologised," Time's statement read.
"We look forward to having Fareed's thoughtful and important voice back in the magazine with his next column in the issue that comes out on September 7," it said.
The CNN followed suite.
"CNN has completed its internal review of Fareed Zakaria's work for CNN, including a look back at his Sunday programmes, documentaries, and cnn.com blogs. The process was rigorous.
"We found nothing that merited continuing the suspension. Zakaria has apologised for a journalistic lapse. CNN and Zakaria will work together to strengthen further the procedures for his show and blog," the news channel said.
"Fareed Zakaria's quality journalism, insightful mind and thoughtful voice meaningfully contribute to the dialogue on global and political issues. His public affairs programme GPS will return on Sunday, August 26 on CNN/International," CNN said.
Editor-at-Large at the prestigious Time magazine, Zakaria had apologised on August 10, after new reports appeared in the US media that his column about gun laws for Time's August 20 issue includes a paragraph that is remarkably similar to one Jill Lepore wrote in April for a New Yorker article about the National Rifle Association.
