I have had reporters reach out to me and their email address is the publication they work for. Tonight, someone on Facebook commented for me to email a gmail address.
No web presence AT ALL.
NO legitimate affiliation with any broadcasting outlet. Vague Facebook and when I responded asking if they could supply anti-psychotics when I told a traumatic story, the name did not come up in bold.
Just because you say you are a reporter on Facebook and LinkedIn does not make you one. If you are trying to become one, be honest. I write and there is no way the content would be written by anyone but myself. It is a great story for me to tell in a book I write. Actually it is already written.
Oddly enough, I sold a toaster on eBay today…..
