Newsweek has added a warning to all of its articles written by Fareed Zakaria following new plagiarism allegations.

Fareed Zakaria worked for Newsweek when it was under previous ownership. Readers are advised that some of his articles have been the subject of complaints claiming that they contain material that should have been attributed to others,” the note reads, Politico reported. “In addition, readers with information about articles by Mr. Zakaria that may purportedly lack proper attribution are asked to e-mail Newsweek at [email protected]

Mr. Zakaria, who now hosts his own CNN news show and pens op-eds for The Washington Post, wrote for Newsweek from 1996 to 2010 and also served as editor of Newsweek International from 2000 to 2010, Politico reported.

Two anonymous plagiarism watchdogs at the website Our Bad Media have dedicated the last couple of months to vetting Mr. Zakaria’s work, allegedly finding dozens of examples of plagiarism, including in his Newsweek articles.

Mr. Zakaria’s employers have remained in his corner amid the new allegations. CNN President Jeff Zucker said Tuesday that he has “complete confidence in Fareed,” while The Post’s Fred Hiatt has dismissed the claims outright, Politico reported.
