Perhaps it’s time for a “turnitin.com” for journalists. Fareed Zakaria’s admission that he plagiarized a passage of an article by historian Jill Lepore about gun control for his Time magazine article [“Passage in Zakaria book is challenged,” Style, Aug. 14] makes me wonder whether the tool used by high school teachers to detect plagiarism should also be used to check journalists’ work as well.
