This is the NYT cracking down on anon sources

In sports, philanthropy, Eminem, Lenny Kravitz's real estate, and cooking, all places where anonymity is critical:

One Minneapolis woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid family discord, said she and her husband were so attached to their mothers' stuffing recipes that they had to alternate years at each table. (http://www.nytimes.com/2004/11/17/dining/17STUF.html)

The hospital has discussed a potential gift of tens of millions of dollars with Evelyn and Leonard Lauder, the cosmetics magnates who have supported Memorial Sloan-Kettering for years, said two longtime fund-raisers familiar with its capital campaign. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not want to alienate the Lauders. (http://www.nytimes.com/2004/11/15/giving/15STRO.html)

Two Western Conference officials who spoke on condition of anonymity said Denver officials were upset by the Nuggets' effort, their sputtering up-tempo game and Bzdelik's inability to control both. (http://www.nytimes.com/2004/11/14/sports/basketball/14hoops.html)

Universal Music Group has licensed songs from its stable of artists including U2 and Eminem to a company that has developed technology designed to prevent the unauthorized distribution of audio tracks over online file-sharing networks, a source familiar with the venture said.

Sometimes the prices are bid up; sometimes they just start higher. The vice president of a Manhattan real estate company who requested anonymity for fear of offending clients said, "I have represented many famous people and I automatically put the price 15 percent higher than I would without the big name for the same sort of apartment, and they have always sold."

The team preferred to build a new stadium that the team would own, according to team officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity. (http://www.nytimes.com/2004/11/11/nyregion/11meadow.html)
