…and finally, we get back around to ethics and journalism. The kids get really riled up about Stephen Glass’ behavior and that inspires some great discussions. There’s also a nice level to the movie where it deals with the idea of the journalist as a celebrity that’s very interesting to kids.

I’ve got to compliment the DVD extras on Shattered Glass, especially the person or persons who thought to include the 60 Minutes follow-up story on Glass’ present whereabouts.
