The Washington Post will “review” Fareed Zakaria’s columns for the newspaper in light of his apology for plagiarism, the New York Times reported.

As we wrote, Zakaria was suspended from Time and CNN after being caught plagiarizing a section of a Time article from the New Yorker.  Zakaria apologized for what he called a “terrible mistake” and a “serious lapse.”

The New York Times quoted Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt as saying “Fareed Zakaria is a valued contributor. We’ve never had any reason to doubt the integrity of his work for us. Given his acknowledgment today, we intend to review his work with him.”
