  •  And... (4.00)
    Too little attention has been paid to a practice which threatens journalism:  acceptance by journalists as well as by political hacks of anonymous sources using their anonymity as a sword, not a shield.

    Some mention of this has crept into MSM accounts of this situation, but it should be brought front and center--there's a difference between obtaining information for the public from whistleblowers who would pay a personal price for rfeleasing the information and receiving attacks which can't be traced back to their point of origin.

    We're all in this together.
