I was wondering if there is a colloquialism or phrase for when you ruin something by documenting it or publicizing it.
For example, if a journalist were to do a story on a beautiful, lush, undeveloped region, and the buzz created by the story resulted in a bunch of ugly hotels and vacation homes being built there, thereby ruining the natural beauty of the area.
That is just one example though. It could be ruining anything, not just nature. It would be like a combination of "shouting it from the rooftops" and "blowing its cover".
