Do TV News Hidden Camera Security Investigations Hurt Or Harm Schools?

I've seen several news reports in the last few months like this one. A TV news crew, sometimes with hidden cameras, walks into an elementary school to show how easy it is for someone to get access. Then they report on the security holes. I can see why they do it. It's an easy story to put together, and it's controversial if they get inside of a school unchallenged.

However, now the reporter for the above story is under investigation after entering an elementary school with a hidden camera in a jurisdiction where it was against the law to enter a school without registering at the front office.
