A defender of anonymice speaks up

leave a comment »

For those of you less addicted to Romenesko than I am, Eugene Robinson of The Washington Post offers a spirited defense of the use of anonymous sources in today’s edition.

Using the notion of magician’s assistant to describe the relationship between journalists and the White House, Robinson argues that the Bushies are so well-versed at getting the media to talk about themselves and their vetting and editing processes that the real questions go unanswered.

It’s a worthwhile read.
