Sources Say . . .

We can never allow our sources to make allegations, contentious statements or vituperative attacks behind a cloak of anonymity. It weakens our credibility and gives the sources an opportunity to benefit at our expense. It is fundamentally unfair to the other party and thus biased. . . .

If a source wants to make a vituperative attack on an individual, organisation, company or country he or she must speak on the record.
