Kinda ironic that an article pretaining to journalistic sourcing fails to cite accurate sources. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Deftdrummer (talkcontribs) 04:21, 24 September 2007 (UTC) I came here to post this Asasa64 (talk) 01:03, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Deep Throat[edit]

If we're going to use the Deep Throat example, why be coy? It was Mark Felt, the world now knows this -- we should use his name here. --Christofurio 20:29, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Anonymous Sources[edit]

I made "Anonymous Sources" its own standalone entry. I wanted to give it some prominence -- would like to see the examples of faulty reporting from anonymous sources grow.

This is my first major edit to a wikipedia article, so forgive me if I've broken any protocols.

Thanks, Matt J. Duffy —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mattjduffy (talkcontribs) 16:18, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Added more regarding the ethics of anonymous sources[edit]

I added a bunch (and sourced) the section about the ethics of anonymous sources, though perhaps the section should be labelled controversy? I dunno. Titanium Dragon (talk) 06:08, 21 October 2013 (UTC)
