Liberal, Character, Oops, Press, Lie

Stephen Glass—the disgraced New Republic journalist who fabricated dozens of reports and was the subject of the film Shattered Glass, a chronicle of said fabrications—was denied a license to practice law in the state of California on Monday... In 2006, Glass passed the California bar examination and filed an application for “determination of moral character” the year after... The 35-page document, which reads as an indictment of all of Glass’s journalistic wrongdoings, ultimately identified fabrications that Glass “previously had denied or failed to disclose,” according to Monday’s court statement.

Glass was fired last week by TNR after a Forbes reporter alerted TNR editor Charles Lane that an article about a teen-age computer hacker ("Hack Heaven," May 18) was full of fabrications, and Lane's own investigation confirmed that Glass had made things up wholesale in many New Republic pieces.
