NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A journalist recently accused of plagiarism has resigned from his position on Yale University’s governing board to better focus on his work.

The New Haven Register reports (http://bit.ly/OIHJP3) that in a letter to Yale President Richard Levin, Fareed Zakaria said he needed to shed some of his responsibilities as he re-examines his professional life.

Levin thanked Zakaria for his time and service.

Zakaria was suspended this month by Time magazine and CNN for lifting several paragraphs from a New Yorker magazine essay and using them in his Time magazine column. Zakaria apologized, calling it a “terrible mistake.”

CNN and Time reinstated Zakaria last week, saying their reviews of his work had shown the lapse was an isolated incident.
