i'm talking to a journalist writing a piece on medical trials, which i used to do quite a lot of. my overall experiences were very positive - i got paid a lot to do nothing when i was otherwise unemployed.
he's made it clear that the message of the piece will be "it's not just easy money" - ie it'll be a tabloid scare story.
i made it clear that i didn't want to be part of bashing something that helped me out, and he's said that's fine and he LITERALLY swore on his wife and kids' lives that he won't misquote me.
so do i take the money (£200) or not?
