  CNN host Fareed Zakaria is in the crosshairs after being accused of plagiarism for a gun-control column. The network said Friday it had suspended Zakaria, a foreign-policy expert and the host of "Fareed Zakaria GPS," after questions arose about a column he wrote this month for Time headlined "The Case for Gun Control. " In the column , Zakaria alluded to the recent shootings at a Colorado movie theater and a Wisconsin Sikh temple, but the rest appeared to be borrowed heavily and without attribution from an April 22 New Yorker article about guns in America by Jill Lepore.

FAREED ZAKARIA has some things right ["Talking About What Ails America," by Utku Cakirozer, May 23]. California is a "basket case." But "blaming foreigners -- in the case of California, blaming Mexicans" isn't a groundless connection. The decline in the socioeconomics of this once great state can directly be attributed to our wonderful illegal "visitors" and the millions of their children given citizenship by accident of birth. The majority of whom just happen to be from Mexico. From the collapse of older family neighborhoods into crime-invested boardinghouses, to schools so busy catering to teaching the Spanish-speaking population that English speakers are neglected, to overburdened human service organizations, these "foreigners" have a direct link to the destruction of this state, and it is unfortunate that Zakaria doesn't see the connection and therefore cannot understand that the California of his childhood memories and the California that exists today are a direct result of his idealized "globalization."

On Nov. 26, 2008, 10 gunmen traveled to Mumbai, India, from Karachi, Pakistan, in a hijacked fishing boat with guns, grenades and bombs and orders to kill people for as long as they could, and then die. The approaching first anniversary of that event, known in India (in what I suppose will forevermore be the way these things are expressed) as 26/11, is anticipated tonight by the HBO documentary "Terror in Mumbai." Written and directed by Dan Reed (whose resume includes documentary films, episodes of "Lewis" and "Agatha Christie: Poirot" and the Gillian Anderson feature "Closure")

He's the new glamour boy of the national media. Bestselling author. Columnist for Newsweek magazine. Editor of Newsweek International. Regular guest on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos." New York magazine last month described him as "silky and unflappable," "dimple-chinned, with expressive eyebrows" and said he could be both "the Indian incarnation of Cary Grant" and "the first Muslim secretary of State." There's only one problem with this panting adulation.

The QUALITY of an interview has, naturally, a great deal to do with the quality of the interviewer. But it may have just as much to do with the perceived quality of the interviewer. In other words, is the person asking the questions worthy of receiving a greater-than-usual dose of truth? Fareed Zakaria, host of the new CNN Sunday talk show "Fareed Zakaria GPS" (10 a.m.), comes to that battle well equipped.

The world's tallest building rises in Taipei, while the largest factory and shopping mall sprawls in China. Nine of the globe's 10 biggest shopping centers aren't in the United States. The planet's largest casino isn't in Las Vegas -- it's in Macao. Bollywood's bigger than Hollywood -- both for the number of movies made and tickets sold. So what are Americans to make of these indicators that we're lagging behind?

June 22, 2003 | Stephen Schwartz, Stephen Schwartz is the author of "The Two Faces of Islam: The House of Sa'ud from Tradition to Terror" and directs the Islam and Democracy Program at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies in Washington.
Nineteen months after Sept. 11, in the immediate aftermath of the war in Iraq, "big books" on terrorism are giving way to more modest books on the challenges of democracy. But such meditations come at a peculiar time for the very concept of democracy.

November 30, 1997 | WALTER RUSSELL MEAD, Walter Russell Mead is the author of "Mortal Splendor: The American Empire in Transition."
Power in America today is what sex was in Victorian Britain: a primal, life-shaping force shrouded in denial and hypocrisy. This is true in domestic affairs when it comes to subjects like class, race and wealth; it is equally true in international relations, a field in which few Americans think, and even fewer write, clearly and frankly about the nation's international role.
