In this public letter, the folks at website/news service antiMusic blast back at a PR firm who was trying to buy them off for good reviews.  Nowadays, people are so cynical about the press that buying editorial favor that might not surprise them.  With many pubs trying to survive, some have taken to ask for labels for ad money to ensure that their product gets reviewed (NY Rock did this for instance but insisted that it wouldn’t mean that they had to give a positive review).  The antiMusic folks note that several other pubs shunned the PR company for trying the same tactic.  Still, you have to wonder if some mags did say yes…
