This could be addressed by setting up a bulletin board as a Tor hidden
service. Submitters would be able to carry on private conversations with
journalists without permanently storing any messages or software on
their own devices - they'd just need a (disposable) copy of the Tor
Browser Bundle and a note of the hidden service's onion URL.

To protect submitters who don't understand the different protections
provided by Tor and HTTPS, I'd suggest making the site available
exclusively through Tor.

Cheers,
Michael
