That's a very good point, Jim! There are definitely times when it's essential to speak up about bad behavior. Reputable journalists are performing a public service by "telling" about serious issues rather than merely "tattling" about trivial concerns. (Yes, someone is being hurt. Yes, something is being broken. No, it's not a situation the journalist can fix alone.) There have also been many cases of whistleblowers speaking up for the greater good, often at significant personal cost.
