Shattered Glass (2003)
Mark Blum: Lewis Estridge
Lewis Estridge : [talking privately in the break room] All I'm suggesting is that there are facets of this you're not considering
Chuck Lane : Why are defending him?
Lewis Estridge : Nobody's defending him
Chuck Lane : Of course you're defending him
Lewis Estridge : He's a kid
Chuck Lane : He doctored his notes just consider that for a second, he sat down and hand wrote a bunch of phony quotes and handed them in as source material for the fact check doesn't that offend you?
Lewis Estridge : Of course it does
Chuck Lane : He also lied to his editor that's supposed to offend you too
Lewis Estridge : His a confused distraught kid obviously so suspend him for a couple months but let's not bury him
Chuck Lane : [Shaking his head] suspend him?
Lewis Estridge : There are also political considerations to take into account here the rest of the staff, the way they feel about him
Chuck Lane : I already know all of that
Lewis Estridge : All I'm saying is if you fire him, some of these people will leave I don't know if we'd still have a magazine at the end of the day
