They are basically offering a marketing channel. THis is not so bad, and it may very well be worth it. But the fact that they are deceptive in how they present it is what makes me think "SCAM!"

The most that we would ask a content provider like you to do we ran a paper was to sign a waiver of control form.
If they are independent news producers then they produce news for themselves in the hope of getting it syndicated, it is a little wrong IMO to expect you to subsidise their business.
Personally I would spend a few hundred $ or £ spend with a decent copywriter and produce your own press release syndicating it yourself. Any editor/newshound who likes it will contact you direct, and if they run the story then you can expect to be contacted by many others, all at no cost to yourself.

News agencies do not charge one to run a story. Therefore I'd respond to them saying that you will not pay them $8,700 USD but you will give them half rate on the hourly rate you charge for your time!

<URL removed, as this company has been referred to as possible scam artists I dont think it appropriate to mention them by name>
said the $8700 is for nielson ratings. Evidently there last big story went on 60 minutes. Doesn't matter if they give me 2 million visitors, for $8,700 i can buy a lot of cheap traffic to my site! Since april 1st of this year i've signed up 22,000 members, so i guess its just a matter of time till someone takes notice.
