Fareed Zakariya Steals Idea from Lawrence of Cyberia

Just about a month ago I posted a link to the Lawrence of Cyberia blog and one particular post, Everything You Know about Iran is a Myth. This morning there’s a Fareed Zakariya column on Newsweek called Everything You Know about Iran is Wrong. Coincidence?

They deal with different topics, though. Lawrence of Cyberia’s informative article is primarily about the notion that Ahmadinejad is a racist Jew-hater and Zakariya’s brief article is mostly about Iran’s nuclear program.

    At times Fareed Zakaria’s show on CNN appears as an attempt primarily to put India on the global public space. On occasions he reduces his Newsweek and Foreign Affairs magazine stature to be the voice of the Indians, for the Indians by an Indian.

    His father, Rafiq Zakaria, was a politician associated with the Indian National Congress serving as Deputy Leader of the Party under Indira Gandhi.

    While pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Political Science from Harvard University in 1993, Fareed studied under Samuel P. Huntington and Stanley Hoffmann. Perhaps the tendencies that reflect from his typically tainted questions come from the influence of such peers.
