WARNING - contains spoiler information for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Rita Skeeter is a tabloid hack who writes for The Daily Prophet. She first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, throughout which she writes slanderous articles, about Harry and his friends, with the help of her Quick-Quotes Quill which leads to Professor Dumbledore banning her from the Hogwarts grounds.
Near the end of the book, Hermione Granger works out how she gets her information for the paper, when she discovers that Skeeter is an unlicensed Animagus who can transform herself into a beetle giving her the ability to sneak around unnoticed.
