Which Agency Did Peter Shankman Ban From HARO For Life?


Peter Shankman‘s Help A Reporter Out email list connects reporters with sources and has five simple rules. One agency, “repeatedly pitched off topic, and ignored the five rules of HARO,” said Shankman today, so he banned the entire agency from the service for life.

Shankman said he would only out agencies or people who break the rules, “in extreme cases.” We’ve already asked him if he’d reveal the offending agency, and he has not responded as of the time of this post.

That doesn’t stop us from guessing. Who do you think it was?
