Local media probably wouldn't be interested since they likely don't know what seo is...however - I do not think you are doing anything wrong and wonder why you are not mentioning the name of the company that is doing this. The only reason I can think of would be to try and get your money back first. I do think it is unethical to do anything for a client that they are unaware of - especially something as risky as this. I provide links from my high ranking client sites to new client sites to give them a jump start (when I can find any remote relevancy for the link)...but they aren't hidden and all my clients know that in my 'stable' we share with each other.
