Would it really be news if all that was reported was "Criminal Commits Crime"?

For example I think no less of 88-year old men, nor think they're all murdering criminals, just because there was a headline "88-year old killed wife with ax".

Now it may be that a person thinks hacker == criminal, but then a such person would not know a hacker (at least one who was not a criminal), and so their view should not affect one. Seeking respect for a group one may associate with, among strangers you'll never meet and whose views you'll never even hear, seems rather silly.
