Eighteen years ago Stephen Glass fabricate a news article to be exact it was the 1998 February of Harper Magazine. Stephen Glass lied about the complete story making it up so he could get a lead. Now in present time Stephen Glass wants to be a part of the Supreme Court but others do not agree on reasoning for what happened in the past. At first, I agreed because everyone deserves a second chance but giving it a second thought I couldn’t agree, I wouldn’t want someone dishonest on the Supreme Court Staff. Clearly, Stephen Glass felt pressured that he didn’t have an article so he faked a story and made it really juicy that he that he couldn’t keep it up and now he had to live with those mistakes. Honestly, if Stephen Glass was able to make that terrible choice in the past what if it happens again but in a another way, it would affect us the people more this time if he messed up on the Supreme Court . Stephen Glass would be in charge of United States affairs and would you want that , the man who lied on magazine article would be judging future convicts and future laws. Stephen Glass shouldn’t be part of the Supreme Court just looking back at it I don’t think he would be a great for the job.
” My Life was one very long process of lying and lying again, to figure out how to cover those other lies.”- Stephen Glass
Just reading this quote made lose all trust in this man, how do we even know his real name is Stephen when he stated his life has been a really long process of lies and still trying to cover up the others. Stephen Glass, if he had come clean about every lie in life maybe i would trust the guy but until then I would not ask the guy for the time. Back to the fact he wants to be apart of the supreme court I honestly do not think he made the cut and maybe he should try another career maybe a try acting since he’s good at lying.
