Batman watched one of Penguin's money drops, but could do little about it - a camera crew was nearby shooting a documentary on the Batman urban legend. He improvised, getting the crew distracted while he took care of business. The crew got interviews from Gordon, the GCPD, and even Bruce Wayne. Few actually believed (admitted) the Batman existed. They interviewed Oswald Cobblepot shortly after he was informed that his building's new owner, Wayne Enterprises, had evicted him. Cobblepot sent the crew to interview Harvey Dent - the originator of the Batman legend. When a situation broke out in Arkham Asylum, Batman saved the crew and scared them away from completing their story.
