So, contacting Reuters is a lot like discussing things with....

...people who have an agenda and their fingers in their ears, oh, so like them folks over at AoA or the ahem woosies at Huff.

In its entirety is the chain from Reuters. My question is bolded and in green. So, I'm totally going to submit my own press release to Reuters as soon as I have the time to do a really inventive one. Anyone want to help? Let's create a group press release together and see if we can get it out there!

Recently you requested assistance from Reuters. Below is a summary of your request and our response.

Thank you for contacting Reuters.

Any reason you can't get a story right and just instead publish smear talk unexamined?
