Blind Item: Which Agency May Be Shutting Somewhere Not in the North?


It’s been several hours and seemingly 1,000 days since we posted a blind item, but might as well celebrate mid-week by dusting this category off. Apparently, one much-hyped agency is in trouble. We’re looking into it, but you can draw you own conclusions from this seemingly worried tipster’s comments (and we’ve heard this before about this certain joint). Time to play Mad Libs:

“________ office of _________ (formerly ______) has no clients, and no work, and should be shutting down in the next month.  Remaining staff told to go find jobs.  A classic case of a horribly-run office, short-sighted strategy of execs, and incompetent ostrich’s-head-in-the-sand management.  It didn’t have to be this way – classic mistakes were made.”
