All the Trumpettes are screaming about "anonymous sources"

Last edited Wed Sep 9, 2020, 12:18 PM - Edit history (1)

And asking why if it's true they won't identify themselves-I have three words for them: The Vindman Brothers. One told the truth and was punished and the other was punished just for being his brother. I'd like to ask them when "the White House" started talking, as in "White House Walks Back Trump's Statement". Or is Trump incapable of walking back his own statements (he is indeed totally unable to do so) and therefore uses anonymous sources and names them "the White House". If you morons want to play in the big leagues the rules have to apply to both sides-who is the lowly staffer tasked to contradict the words coming out of Trump's mouth and is the source kept anonymous to prevent the main moron from reprisals against them?

2. I don't blame anyone who remains anonymous, espec when the story was verified by 4 other

Very reliable sources.

But the trumphumpers are too stupid to understand that

3. The initial Fox News rebuttal was from two sources. Anonymous sources.

4. In another vein, "Deep Throat" remained anonymous

For years. And we have that anonymous source to thank for getting rid of Nixon.

8. Qanon

They love them some anonymous sources as long as they spin out wild conspiracy theories.
Just not the anonymous ones who speak plausible and confirmed truths.

Got it.

"anonymous sources" don't even understand what that phrase means. I've seen some article/interviews where it's stated they think the information is coming from envelopes left in dark places, or codes highlighted in a newspaper, etc.

What they don't realize or understand is that "anonymous" means unknown to the general public, however, the writer/reporters DO know who the sources are and are keeping the names private. The willfully ignorant often fail to make the distinction.
