Columnist and TV host Fareed Zakaria has apologized for lifting several paragraphs by another writer for use in his column in Time magazine. His column has been suspended for a month.
Media reporters had noted similarities between passages in Zakaria's column about gun control that appeared in Time's Aug. 20 issue, and paragraphs from an article by Harvard University history professor Jill Lepore published in April in The New Yorker magazine.
On Friday, the publishing platform WikiLeaks posted 19,252 searchable emails, including 8,034 attachments, from inside the Democratic National Committee. the data trove is easily searchable for personal information like credit card numbers, birthdays, and even Social Security numbers.
This should be the end of any respect anyone might still have for wikileaks. It's become a criminal organization where hackers post people's personal information for scammers to data mine.
