Law & Order 11/19 - Spoil It For Me?

I fell asleep about halfway through Law & Order last night. The last thing I saw was the reporter being arrested for treason.

Can someone please reveal the remainder of the episode for me?

My most gracious thanks in advance of what I know will be a generous outpouring of buttkicking Doper recaps and hearty discussion flowing therefrom. :smiley:

Eventually it was figured out that the reporter had arranged to be shot for the publicity. They didn’t have enough evidence at the end of the episode to do anything about it, though.

Who shot him?

I only saw the end of the program too, and recall the reporter saying “shit.” Was that my imagination? If not, is swearing normally allowed on “Law and Order”? I hadn’t watched the program in long time.
