The yellow press chose to report Crowleys because they had a thing about him and it made good copy.
If they had not reported him, as they did not report the royals, Crowley would not hve been known by hardly anyone.
Yes, Crowley reveled in some of his notoriety but still, he did not choose it, it was foisted on him by the press.
On the other hand, given the choice I think he would have chosen it.
