Descriptions Absence of Malice
Suppose you picked up this morning’s newspaper and your life was a front page headline… and everything they said was accurate… but none of it was true.
Megan Carter is a reporter duped into running an untrue story on Michael Gallagher, a suspected racketeer. He has an alibi for the time his supposed crime was committed but it involves an innocent party. When she tells Carter the truth and the newspaper runs it, tragedy follows, forcing Carter to face up to the responsibilities of her job when she is confronted by Gallagher.
