I'm interested that you thought the press does assume it is reasonable. If
they do, I wonder if the editorial pressures from the publishing companies
they work for is a reason for that? If someone from a recording industry
came in and demanded their communications and leads, I'm sure the writers
who were so sympathetic would pitch a big fit!
