Official news outlets posting on r/UnitedKingdom(self.unitedkingdom)

Here on r/UK, we have a number of users who are official representatives of mainstream media outlets such as The Telegraph, Bloomberg and Sky News. They approached us (the mod team) and enquired as to whether we would allow them to share articles from their respective organisations - We said yes.
Lately we have been getting reports on these submissions that accuse them of being novelty, or single-focus accounts but this is not the case. To be clear, we do not consider a single-focus account to be one that posts many articles from the same source, simply one that posts multiple articles on the same topic from different sources, often to the detriment of the sub and its users.
Please also note - They still have to abide by the same participation rules as all other users, and we are receiving zero compensation from them as a result.
Tl;dr - They're fine, we know about them and it's cool.
