Well, I will see if I can play-test it with Fairy-Max. It seems a very expensive piece, in terms of branching ratio. I guess that to not explode the search tree, I would need to apply extra search-depth reduction to Ghost moves.

I see that there was a proposal to rename the piece. The name 'Journalist' suggests itself. Going everywhere, and getting in everybody's way! :-)
