I am in the media, on a deadline and writing about you. The deadline is today.

This is horrible. You wrote, “'In most cases, employers can't actually check your credit score, but checking an individual's credit report actually give[SIC] them far more information about the individual such as public records like bankruptcies and tax liens, balances and payment history on loans, like mortgages and student loans, even things like medical bills,' said Ian Atkins, financial analyst at Fit Small Business, adding that employers have to get written permission in order to do a credit check and must also advise if a credit check will lead to not getting the job or a promotion." #falsity

That is not true. In all cases, employers can't actually check your credit score. We even corresponded on that, Mr. Weisbaum. This is a ten-year joke that I have been writing and now it is time for the punch line.
