Edited to clarify:

The walkthrough I followed is linked below. It is very well written by aPerfektFIaw.

Some Saint walkthroughs also get you this achievement - here is one if you need it (credit to CarlottaMonroe):

I would definitely recommend doing Saint/Transmissionary on the same playthrough, but if not, below is how you do the bare minimum (if you've already gotten the Saint achievement and/or don't want to bother saving everyone).

You receive transmissions regarding these people, so you MUST save Ronald (Restaurant Man scoop), Floyd (Antique Lover), Kindell (Found outside Isabella's meeting place during 5-1), Paul (Long Haired Punk - save with fire extinguisher), Isabella (for Simone to be saved), Simone (A Woman in Dispair) and Cheryl (A Strange Group).

Supposedly, you also need at least 3 people in each of Ronald, Floyd and Kindell's rooms to trigger their mutiny/request transmissions. So, additionally I elected to save:

Jeff, Natalie, Bill, Sophie, Burt, Aaron, Josh, Barabara, Rich, Pamela, Heather, Sally, Nick, Jolie and Rachel.

This puts at least 4 in each room and guarantees the calls (I've confirmed this myself). I basically avoided the large groups and individuals that needed to be carried with the exception of the must-save Floyd.

Kill everyone else because if you have pending calls that would give you a group of 8+, you won't get any more calls for scoops that have more followers because 8 is the max you can have at once. Make sure you kill anyone you don't need.

Hope this information helps!

Edit : Someone commented that one of the links suggests that calls stop before they do. To be clear - keep going through Case 8. There are calls through case 8-3, so don't stop.
