  • Intercept Co-Founder Goes Off the Rails, Compares Dick Cheney to Butcher Assad

    A simple news segment about the media coverage of Syria spun wildly out of control during Sunday’s Reliable Sources on CNN. It started with Foreign Correspondent Lara Setrakian noting how little coverage the Syrian civil war received in the early years. But it ending with Jeremy Scahill, co-founder of The Intercept, going off the rails and declaring that “We need to understand the historical context of how a butcher like Assad actually has more in common with someone like Dick Cheney than he does with the average Syrian…” Scahill’s inane tirade derailed the whole segment from the moment he opened...

    He's done it before, but he quadrupled down this time. CNN's serial plagiarist Fareed Zakaria, who insists that former President Barack Obama's administration was "largely scandal-free," contended on Don Lemon's CNN Tonight show Friday evening that Donald Trump owes his whole life, his success and his election to the presidency to "bullsh*tting." As Matthew Balan at NewsBusters observed in early August, Zakaria described Trump as a "bullsh*t artist," and went to the left's favorite characterization of anyone they disagree with or don't like: CNN's Fareed Zakaria ripped Donald Trump with an uncensored expletive on Monday's Wolf program over the billionaire's...

    Disturbing reports are coming in that Twitter has taken down a photo that showed President Barack Hussein Obama holding something truly despicable. The image reportedly showed Obama holding the book "The Post-American World," which was written by radical Muslim author Fareed Zakaria. "In the book, Zakaria argues that, thanks to the actions of the United States in spreading liberal democracy across the world, other countries are now competing with the US in terms of economic, industrial, and cultural power," the Wikipedia description read. "While the US continues to dominate in terms of political-military power, other countries such as China and...

    People's Cube ^ | 1/2/2016 | Chedoh
    Fareed Zakaria, CNN host of 'Foreign Affairs,' a program focusing on international events, has in his private blog called for the merciless rape of white females by Islamic minority groups shortly after openly gloating over the rise in premature deaths of white males in his article in The Washington Post. Zakaria's blog post unapologetically calls to increase the death rate of white Middle America by systematically targeting Caucasian females. ... CNN officials have refused to take action against their employee, stating that there was no evidence of hate speech or racism in Zakaria's writings because he only targeted whites and...
  • Fareed Zakaria Celebrates: White People are Dying and Trump Can’t Save You!

    Breitbart ^ | Jan 2, 2016 | John Nolte
    Citing a study that shows Middle American whites are dying in increasing numbers, like a twisted and bitter eugenicist, serial-plagiarist Fareed Zakaria doesn’t even attempt to contain his glee. By painting those who are supposedly dying as useless, drug-addicted ragers, he paints a picture of a weak, angry, and ultimately stupid ethnic group getting what it deserves. If this were any other group, Zakaria would not be using the pages of the Washington Post for a victory dance. Instead, he would be launching an emotional blackmail campaign to cure this “epidemic” with hundreds of billions of federal dollars. Like most...

    The Washington Post ^ | December 31, 2015 | Fareed Zakaria
    Why is Middle America killing itself? The fact itself is probably the most important social science finding in years. It is already reshaping American politics. The Post's Jeff Guo notes that the people who make up this cohort are "largely responsible for Donald Trump's lead in the race for the Republican nomination for president." The key question is why, and exploring it provides answers that suggest that the rage dominating U.S. politics will only get worse. For decades, people in rich countries have lived longer. But in a well-known paper, economists Angus Deaton and Anne Case found that over the...
  • Zakaria Oozes: ‘Cool’ ‘Fireman’ Obama Used Speech ‘to Douse’ Donald Trump’s ‘Flames'

    In the latest analogy put forth by a member of the liberal media to praise President Obama, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria opined on Monday’s CNN Tonight that the President used his speech to the nation on Sunday to come across as the “cool” “fireman” who will “douse” the “flames” started by Donald Trump. Additionally, Zakaria hailed the speech as “vintage Obama” as he conducted “an adult conversation” with the American people about ISIS and forced them to accept his ISIS strategy since “not a lot of people have come up with an alternative.”

    ...A Southeast Asian intelligence official said at least three members of a Southeast Asian cell earmarked to carry out the attack on the West Coast were being held in Malaysia under the Internal Security Act, which allows detention without trial. "One guy was given money to go for pilot training," said the official, who has proven reliable in the past. He said the would-be pilot, Zaini Zakaria, was arrested in 2002, and the others were probably chosen to play supporting roles in the hijacking. Members of the cell fled to Malaysia from Afghanistan after the United States began bombing al...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/14/2012 | Jack Cashill
    First, I will acknowledge up front that this is a revised version of an earlier American Thinker article, which in itself was an update of the information contained in my book,Deconstructing Obama. But as still another Harvard worthy gets busted for literary fraud, I feel compelled to keep updating my scorecard. The culprit this time is the painfully smug Fareed Zakaria, CNN host, Time Magazine columnist, and Harvard Ph.D. Not surprisingly, Harvard Law's own Barack Obama is a Zakaria fan. In a famous photo, the president is seen holding a copy of Zakaria's book, The Post-American World, a world that...

    Both Time magazine and CNN have suspended columnist Fareed Zakaria following the revelation of similarities between his recent writing for both news organizations on gun control and another reporter's writing in the New Yorker. Newsbusters, a conservative media watchdog, flagged on Friday morning close parallels between a paragraph in an article in Mr. Zakaria's most recent column, about gun control, and an April 23 essay in the New Yorker by Jill Lepore.

    National Review ^ | 08/10/2012 | Robert VerBruggen
    Fareed Zakaria has tried to make The Case for Gun Control in Time. The results are not pretty. Virtually every argument he makes misrepresents the underlying data. After a lead that cites the Sikh-temple shooting, the Aurora massacre, and the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others, Zakaria trots out the usual international comparisons: The gun-homicide rate per capita in the U.S. is 30 times that of Britain and Australia, 10 times that of India and four times that of Switzerland. When confronted with such a large deviation, a scholar would ask, Does America have some potential cause for this...

"TIME accepts Fareed's apology, but what he did violates our own standards for our columnists, which is that their work must not only be factual but original; their views must not only be their own but their words as well. As a result, we are suspending Fareed's column for a month, pending further review." CNN, where Zakaria hosts a show, has yet to respond to a request for comment regarding Zakaria's admission of plagiarism. Earlier this afternoon, Zakaria released a statement...

Zakaria apologized Friday, declaring in a statement he made "a terrible mistake," adding, "It is a serious lapse and one that is entirely my fault." In a separate statement, Time spokesman Ali Zelenko said the magazine accepts Zakaria's apology, but would suspend his column for one month, "pending further review."

    Fareed Zakaria : You Know, We Are Being Way Too Hard On Iran I honestly don't understand how some people come by a reputation as a serious thinker. Exhibit Number 1, Fareed Zakaria, who I like to think of as a younger and dumber Tom Friedman. He knows exactly what the problem with our Iran policy is...Obama won't talk to them. Early in the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama signaled that he was going to break with the Bush administrations Manichean foreign policy. The topic was Iran. He explained repeatedly that the Bush policy of simply pressuring Iran was not...

    Time magazine columnist and CNN host Fareed Zakaria says Republican presidential candidate Herman Cains 9-9-9 tax reform plan is sloppy and, in parts, bizarre. So he offered his own version of a tax reform plan in his weekly column in Time. In it, Zakaria argues that Americans should give the federal government half of what they inherit. I would enact a 50 percent inheritance tax, because nothing is more un-American than an inherited elite that perpetuates itself, Zakaria wrote for the magazine.

    Journalists in Washington dont want just to write. They want the top government officials to take their advice, to use their wisdom to govern. Heres what happens next: a dance between journalist and government official to build a mutually beneficial relationship. The official provides access, makes the journalist feel important and consulted, and then the journalist announces that the official is wise and is making all the right moves. This is exactly what CNN host and Time columnist Fareed Zakaria has been doing with President Obama. Hes advising Obama (informally, of course) and then going on CNN and declaring the...
