Like, April O'Neil from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, this trope is when someone working for the press helps out the heroes, either by giving them vital info from the press or by forcing them to rescue him or her by them getting caught up in the story. Examples: Obviously, April O'Neil, but Amy Allen from the A-Team also qualifies. Also, when Peter Parker stopped working for the Daily Bugle, Ben Urich and Robbie gave him scoops. Ben even helps Daredevil occasionally.
