About Fareed Zakaria

Fareed Zakaria has been a mainstay in journalism for years, hosting a weekly show on CNN and writing weekly articles for The Washington Post. For his fans who want Fareed more than once a week, he frequently tweets out to his 940K+ Twitter followers and posts pictures from his life’s travels on his highly relatable Instagram to 14K+ followers. As his fans can tell from his Instagram, Fareed is your everyday dad, posting selfies, pictures of food he’s cooked and shots of Brody, his adorable puppy. In a profile early last year in the New York Times, Fareed admits to sleeping right next to his phone, checking emails before falling asleep just like the rest of us.
