The next time you see a reporter on the street, remember this: they could be a sinister and brutal criminal. Just avoid them, preferably with an alarmed gasp and a forking of the fingers to ward off their evil.
Oh sure, not every reporter is a crazed scofflaw, but how can you be sure? I hear that garlic and a blessed crucifix help against their vile criminal proclivities, too. Or wolfsbane. One of them.
