    • Anonymous sources are the "Just trust me bro" of the evidence world. Usable and passable if you've shown that you're able to be trusted, but worth absolutely nothing if you've been caught lying multiple times.

    • A lot of people dont get the context of this, YES THERE IS A TIME AND PLACE FOR ANONYMOUS SOURCING, But CNN and The MSM are pushing a totally fake story "An Anonymous source told an anonymous Journalist that Trump called a Cemetery of Troops, Losers" That's why I made this post

    • For all the fucking idiots, an “Anonymous source” does not mean a source where a journalist doesn’t know where they’re getting their info from, it means a source isn’t being named to protect them from harm.

    • Jeffrey Goldberg was the journalist who in 2002 wrote the article falsely claiming that Saddam Hussein had WMDs and started the Iraq War over a blatant lie. He even wrote a followup article in 2010 called "Yes i know i started the Iraq War." Dont believe him.
