We've enshrined the "anonymous source" as a kind of Oracle. Everytime I read or hear a reporter speaking about an anonymous source I automatically wonder what that "source" has to gain with his revelation. And then I get to wondering if there is any "source" at all.

It's a silly way to report, and a silly thing for any American to listen to. But far too many pay attention to the "anonymous source".
