Based on my inbox, people have some weird impressions about what journalists are & do. For instance: journalists are not a public research service! Librarians are paid to help you research things. Journalists, it turns out, are not.

Also: if you're wondering whether a journalist has opinions on subject X, you might start by googling their name & X. Alternatively, you could write them an email & force THEM to google their name & X & then send you the results because really they have nothing but time.

Sorry, y'all, going through my inbox at the end of the week fills me with rage over some very hyper-specific grievances.
