Why is it that people always threaten journalists yet they demand news from them?

That's an interesting perspective. I disagree with it, but I

suppose that from that perspective you could say that the Public

has a love-hate relationship with the press. They want the news,

but they also respect privacy, and thus "threaten" journalists.

Personally, I have never threatened a journalist, or known anyone

who has... but then, I am not a celebrity, and I don't watch the

news. To me, I think that there are ways to get stories without

invading people's personal lives. Good reporting and research gets

you a lot of information without sneaking around and breaking into

people's houses. Perhaps there is a group of reporters that make a

bad name for the rest?
