Stephen Glass Repays Harper’s $10,000 for His Discredited Work

Stephen Glass, one of journalism’s most infamous fabulists, sent Harper’s Magazine a check for $10,000 this week as repayment for a discredited article he had published there in 1998, and said he planned to repay other publications that ran his fabricated work.


“I want to make right that part of my many transgressions,” he wrote in a letter to current and former magazine employees. “I recognize that repaying Harper’s will not remedy my wrongdoing, make us even, or undo what I did wrong. That said, I did not deserve the money that Harper’s paid me and it should be returned.”
