They do this for attention. Don't give it to them.
This is an interesting proposal, but it wouldn't work. You can't just fine media for getting information like that and it wouldn't be possible to keep it a secret. However, I understand what you are getting at and I support it in theory. I just can't figure out how to make it work.
