Lane fired journalist Stephen Glass in 1998 for making up a story that ran in the magazine under the headline Hack Heaven. It was subsequently discovered that Glass fabricated other stories for The New Republic and other publications. The story of Stephen Glass is told in the new film Shattered Glass. Lane now covers the Supreme Court for The Washington Post.
