Anonymous Sources

Shafer throws down the gauntlet.

If reporters agree with Okrent that background briefings are "an affront to journalistic integrity and an insult to the citizenry" (as I do), they could abolish the practice in a fortnight. All they need do is drop me an e-mail every time an under-sub-deputy-director of flimflam convenes a background briefing. I'll provide the creative destruction by publishing the anonymice's names in this column, thereby putting the briefings on the record.
