What you say is right, but if for example the SPIEGEL drives some tor exits by 
themselves and police seizes them it is something different for the SPIEGEL 
journalists. So the SPIEGEL is dircectly involved and they have much more 
awareness about what goes on with tor. Furthermore they would (I hope so) 
provide some infos in their "Contact" area on their website how to use 
anonymization tor contacting journalists or the SPIEGEL office. And thats 
waht I want. They shell be directly involved, not just reporting about that.
