Cost Benefit Analysis
A reporter can make more money working with a scopist!  
Here is an example that clearly demonstrates how this can be done:

-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
Day 1

Reporter A w/scopistReporter B w/out scopist
Appearance Fee:   $75Appearance Fee:    $75
200 pgs. @  $2:  $400200 pgs. @ $2:     $400

They each make $475 for that day.


Day 2

Reporter A w/scopistReporter B w/out scopist
Appearance Fee:   $75Scoping own work: $ 0
200 pgs. @  $2:   $400          
Makes:  $475 for dayMakes $0 for day

Reporter A pays .75 per page to scopist ($150.00) and ends up with  $325.00 for  the day.  

Reporter B spent the day scoping the job from Day 1 herself and made no money on Day 2!

Summary:
So
Reporter A makes $650 for the two days
(plus the tax deduction of $300 paid to scopist )

and
Reporter B makes $475.
