Zakaria resigns from Yale Board
Fareed Zakaria, who last week admitted to plagiarism and was suspended from Time Magazine and CNN, stepped down from the highly prestigious position on the board of the Yale Corporation. Mutual platitudes were exchanged by Yale’s President Richard Levin and Zakaria in public statements and both expressed regret about the necessity of this action. The Yale Institute for the Interdisciplinary Study of Antisemitism, YIISA, no doubt, will not be invited back to the Yale Campus nor will there be any regretful statements about the circumstances of its abrupt removal from Yale nor the due process denied it at the time. Though that pointed action was taken during Zakaria’s tenure as chair of Yale Corporation’s Educational Policy Committee, there’s no sign of it being reviewed. Richard Levin was President of Yale at the time as well.
