Why have you refused to provide your credentials? A real journalist would be happy to not only provide documentation of his/her credentials, but also his/her school and the course(s) he/she took. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure that any real news site would require you to show your credentials prior to writing for them. I’ve already told you how to provide them without giving away any personal information, so what are you waiting for?

Thank you for the note/friend request but due to the extraordinary amount of correspondence I receive, I cannot respond individually to each and every email. Also, I am now only accepting new friends of remarkable qualities. I apologize if you do not make the cut. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors!
I am, yours in Christ,
Stephenson Billings, Certified and Credentialed Investigative Journalist

1. I’m not your friend
2. I did not send you a friend request
3. This is a message, not an email
4. You are no more than a blogger until you provide us with those supposed “credentials” of yours

I shall reiterate that I’m going against my morals and ethics by posting a private conversation online. My conscience is guilty, but I feel it imperative that Stephenson Billings be revealed for what he is: a fraud. http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=27xfll3&s=6
