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?
