The Gatecrasher column in the New York Daily News reports that Workhouse Publicity “sent out the message, titled ‘Occupy Wall Street: News from the Front,’ to a number of media outlets, socialites and celebrities on Wednesday.”

The email, which include the tagline, “The revolution will not be editorialized,” a reference to what some see as a lack of coverage about the protests, included a link to a Facebook gallery of photos of demonstrators, reports the Daily News.

Workhouse CEO Adam Nelson stressed that the effort was unsolicited and pro bono.

The firm released a statement about the email blast, in which it said: “We have no agenda and our service in this regard is simple: Publicize the message as the march continues.”

Workhouse’s clientele includes Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Interview magazine, filmmaker Tim Burton, Bergdorf Goodman, and Saks Fifth Avenue, according to its website.
