Episode Summary

EDIT
Rachel Glass and the No Good, Very Bad Day
AIRED:
Rachel and Peter hold blind ads for a new field producer and, against Rachel's judgement, hire Ethan Barnes, Jack's son. Mel nearly gets killed trying to follow up on a story concerning a gang of young Asians called The Kong Boys. Their lieutenant, Ricky Tran, did a long interview with I24 prior to testifying against gang leader Dennis Chung -- an unaired, unedited interview which a crooked judge demands to see, even though that violates the first amendment. Mel sticks to his principals and refuses to hand the tape over, and ends up threatened by the Kong Boys and arrested for his trouble. Quentin and Janet both come to Rachel with their problems; the former because he feels underappreciated, the latter because she's been sent back to doing puff pieces. Jamie and Julian come to blows while doing a story on wilderness survival techniques, and inadvertently make the rest of the newsroom think something happened to them when they don't answer their pagers. Meanwhile, Janet hires a publicist, Lori Stark, to help boost her profile; and after Mel's situation and a visit to her cousin's, Rachel wishes she had a family.moreless
