The Daily Beast simultaneously reached out to the HQ public relations email account and Yusupov, one of HQ’s founders, letting him know of our plans to write a story about the show’s host.
No, because you’d have to go through proper press channels.”Yusupov was repeatedly reassured that Scott had not revealed a single piece of classified information about HQ.
After a back and forth wherein Yusupov told The Daily Beast its reporter would never be allowed to talk to Rogowsky again, the co-founder nervously stated that the conversation was off the record, something he had not stated before that point and a precondition The Daily Beast had never agreed to. ***The Daily Beast’s chat with Rogowsky himself was considerably less combative.
