Do you believe news stories with "unnamed" sources?


Seems as if most news stories are based on the "so-called" reports of "former officials who wish to remain unnamed" or "anonymous sources at high levels" or something similar. This type of reporting is optimal it seems for a media intent on leading the public in one direction or another, but is it working? Are you as a consumer of news willing to believe things without a real person to attribute it to?

    No offense to your prior occupation, but doesn't it seem that a disproportionate amount of todays news comes from these unnamed sources, which never seem to get verified?
