History:
(Daredevil I#319) - A new reporter at the Daily Bugle, Sara Harrington commended Ben Urich on his expose on an old government project where nerve gas was spread in the subway tunnels. Ben advised Sara to be patient and not just look for the big breaks. J. Jonah Jameson then entered with Col. Strang, a man seeking to control the paper who was demanding a shut down for a day. Later, Ben had Sara hack into the Bugle systems to retrieve his various news stories.

(Daredevil I#320) - Harrington continued working at hacking the system, but Urich grew impatient and left. When the transfer went through, she inadvertently found a story Urich had written that named Daredevil as Matt Murdock.

(Daredevil I#321) - Harrington waited outside Urich's apartment, determined to steal files that backed up the Daredevil claim.

(Daredevil I#322) - Ben and Doris Urich heard Harrington in his home and grabbed a bat, hitting her hand in the dark. Harrington knocked Urich down and fled. The next morning, at the Daily Bugle, Harrington showed up to work with her hand bandaged, and Urich grew suspicious.

(Daredevil I#323) - Sara took the story to a small-press paper with a poor reputation, the Big Apple Advocate, and met with Lou and Stevey. They were hesitant to print the story, realizing it could cause legal complications and that Sara had likely stolen the story from Urich, but realized they could make the headline "Matt Murdock is Daredevil?" and cover their bases.

(Daredevil I#324) - Sara's story appeared in the paper. She interviewed with Robert Dennehy outside Murdock's apartment when Ben Urich yelled at her in front of the cameras for her cheap tactics and lack of proof. After the news story broke, "Foggy" Nelson called Judge Carter for a restraining order against the press.

(Daredevil I#325) - Sara, with Dennehy behind her, stormed Matt Murdock's apartment, ignoring Foggy Nelson and Ben Urich, who stood outside with a restraining order. Sara, wanting to keep her name in the headlines, was genuinely surprised to find a normal blind man's apartment there. As Dennehy walked off embarrassed, Sara accused Ben of setting her up and she threatened to steal more files, but Urich warned her of the consequences. Sara was later arrested by the F.B.I. for phone fraud, and she was furious.
