Storyline

A TV reporter who will stop at nothing to get a big scoop -- up to and including inventing the story outright. He hires a professional stunt man to fake his own suicide by diving off a bridge while the reporter is there and the cameras roll. Just as the stunt man makes his leap, a priest who has been trying to talk the "suicide" out of jumping makes a last-ditch grab at the stunt man's clothing. As a result, both take a tumble into Los Angeles Harbor, and the priest is killed on impact. When the stunt man, who survived and is now hiding out, calls out the reporter on the inadvertent murder of an innocent man, the reporter throws HIM off a roof and kills him. Barnaby, Betty and J.R. set up a scheme where the reporter will "cover" still another phony story and implicate himself in the murder. When the reporter pulls a gun and tries to escape, J.R. tackles him. Lt. Biddle comes onto the scene and arrests the reporter for murder; the reporter then asks Biddle to let the reporter videotape... Written by Peter Harris
