TB-infected "man"

Why is no news organization reporting his name? Surely, finding the name cannot be hard, and what does it say about the news media that they cannot do the research - apparently - to produce the name while relying simply on relaying what the government and health people tell them?

After posting the preceding paragraph, CNN - no doubt putting dozens of sidewalk-friendly reporters on the assignment - has just reported that the "man" is a lawyer who practices in the Atlanta, GA area. What a breakthrough and how embarrassing for the news business.
