As Scotland Yard launches a new probe into the phone-hacking scandal at the News of the World, agencies providing material to internationally renowned news site, TheSpoof, are falling under suspicion.
Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday urged prosecutors to follow the evidence "wherever it leads" when he was challenged by a Labour MP to bring in another police force to investigate the Met's handling of the matter.
At the same time, papers seen by EIF News & Features suggest that other agencies may be part of the investigation.
EIF News & Features is referred to directly while other agencies, such as Skoob Entertainment News and C J News, are also thought to be included.
EIF News & Features chief, Ellis Ian Field, said: "Bring it on. The lads and lasses here are pure as the driven snow.
"We get our news by the tried-and-tested, good old-fashioned, traditional methods - ambulance chasing, digging through rubbish bins, high-powered long-distance lenses, and hanging out in seedy bars.
"There's no substitute for wearing out the shoe leather.
"Besides, none of my lot would know where to start hacking phones!"
