The story of Stephen Glass, denounced for journalistic fraud in 1998, sets the stage for debate on editorial practices and ethical standards in this study guide to the film Shattered Glass. Students test a reporter’s ability to judge character, sharpen their fact-checking skills, explore the tensions built into the editorial process, and investigate other real-life cases that have put the ethics of journalism into question.
