Hello Mr. [NAME OF THE WHISTLE-BLOWER, REDACTED FOR PRIVACY],
Thank you for your email. Yes, we have had some changes in personnel here since you last corresponded. I’m glad you were able to find me.
I’ve considered your proposal and discussed it with one of our reporters.
We are of course backed up with plenty of work involving the pandemic and Brexit.
We must decline your offer. But if a court of law decides to accept this case and investigate this potential scandal, we would be more interested.
