Episode Summary

The Evening News (Part 1)

Billy Finley is constantly the butt of his co-workers jokes, and is fired after he makes a fool out of himself on two different stories, one with Matlock, the other with politician Joe Bivins. Shortly after, the body of another fired co-worker, Doug Levitt, is found, and Billy is the first suspect. Matlock agrees to defend Billy, who then makes another scene as he confronts Diane Becker at the office, accusing her of being behind the second prank, which ended up getting him fired. What Matlock doesn't realize is that Levitt faked his own death, and he and Becker were involved in a scheme to make a lot of money by airing incorrect news regarding a report by the zoning commission. While Conrad keeps an eye on their third partner, Nelson Adelson, Matlock is also trying to get out of a ticket for failure to stop at a stop sign.
