Fareed Zakaria on Monday resigned from his position on Yale University’s governing board, explaining in a letter to Yale’s president, Richard C. Levin, that he could not remain on the board while attending to his many other responsibilities as a journalist, according to the New Haven Register. Mr. Zakaria’s resignation follows his recent admission that he plagiarized a paragraph from The New Yorker for a column in Time on gun control. He had been temporarily suspended by CNN and Time, and was later reinstated. Mr. Levin had indicated that the board was in the process of reviewing the incident, but that plan has been abandoned in light of Mr. Zakaria’s resignation.
