* Played with in the made for [=TV=] movie, "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." A self-proclaimed televangelist targets the titular whorehouse that has been in the town for ''generations'' and presumably not broken any laws or caused any problems, according the the sheriff, played by Burt Reynolds. Said televangelist eventually takes a film crew there in the middle of the night, breaks a padlock on the fence marking the boundary to the property and ''then'' has his cameraman turn on the camera, once the gate is open, to make it look like he's invited. He then proceeds to take his film crew storming through the small mansion, rousing numerous prostitutes and clients, making all their faces public to shame them, and rake in the ratings. The sheriff retaliates by visiting his studio, and then, just out of camera frame, ripping off the televangilist's wig, and decking him right into the camera shot of the singing choir and then calmly walking over his prone form, making it look like he just arrived on the scene before leaving.

* Creator/PierceBrosnan (of ''Film/JamesBond'' fame) and his family were hounded by a photographer. Feeling that enough was enough, he walloped the fellow. That'll teach him not to mess with [[{{Badass}} James Bond.]]

[[TooDumbToLive Unfortunately, his kids Shannon and Brandon were in the yard at the time, and he terrified them]]; a '''very''' angry Lee [[PapaWolf kicked the man with such force, it knocked him out instantly and may have killed him if Lee's foot was a bit more to the side.]]

This is a staple of pretty much any work of fiction dealing with celebrities - the characters will inevitably have to deal with paparazzi who are looking for a story to sell at some point, no matter how it affects the lives of the story's subjects, or what laws the paparazzi break in the process of getting the story. This can be considered the {{Jerkass}} flipside or EvilCounterpart to the IntrepidReporter.

* ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'': Peter Parker. [[ProtagonistCentredMorality Yes, he has been this.]] In his first meeting with Doctor Octopus he catches the man holding some hospital staff hostage. All fine and well...but the only reason Peter was ''at'' that hospital in the first place was that the police and the hospital had refused to let the press in to take photos of Octopus, who at the time was little more than the victim of a horrible lab accident. In other words, Peter broke into a hospital to secretly take pictures of an injured man. He's totally nonchalant about it too and made a remark along the lines of [[CompletelyMissingThePoint "I've never heard of a hospital keeping people out]]" with regards to his plan to sneak in.

** He once had to deal with a rather vile and self-admitted paparazzi (and the biggest {{slimeball}} you'd ever meet) named Nick Katzenburg, a FatSlob with absolutely no morals, who gained a high position at the Daily Bugle because J. Jonah Jameson had been replaced by the Chameleon, making the Bugle's attacks against Spider-Man into outright slander. When the real Jonah returned, Nick's claws were clipped a little, due to Jonah having some morals as a newsman, and then severely grounded when Thomas Fireheart became the owner in a hostile takeover, turning the Bugle's coverage towards him positive in order to repay a debt he felt he owed (which, sadly, was just as biased, only in reverse). Nick's slanderous ways finally came to a head when he took incriminating pictures of [[TheDon the Rose]] and published them with Peter Parker's name to protect himself; once the truth came out, he was the target of both the underworld and the police, and an attempt on his life led to a heart attack and his eventual death from lung cancer.
