    Yes, anonymity is something I take with a grain of salt. That's why I don't typically believe any of it. Even if it comes from a 'reputable' source, the political climate shifts far too much and too often to deem any anonymous source as credible. The age of technology has shifted what can and cannot be faked far too much.

    Anonymous sources from non-reputable publications should generally be assumed to be false. It's not that they are always false, but there isn't the same guarantee of journalistic standard, and they often abuse the "anonymous source" concept to proliferate fake news.
    Again, all anonymous sources should be looked at with doubt. The guarantee of journalistic standards from places is called into question, in my mind, when I see 30 previous publications that hold no actual merit or deviation to the already hostile environment that is political alliances. I've always doubted the news because agenda, agenda, agenda.

    Having said all of that- I would say take any story about what Mueller's team is going to say/do with an entire ocean of salt. Mueller's team has been airtight. The "anonymous sources" have been the Trump legal team/friends and grand jury witnesses. It's never from the Mueller team itself.
    What point do you stop shoveling salt into the ocean?

    I've seen several journalists allude to the fact that the steady stream of "Mueller's about to wrap things up!" tips are coming directly from Trump's legal team and allies (likely to placate him), for example.
    Placating one side or the other is pretty much what journalists do these days. So again, salty ocean.

    Also, that point was undercut by the Manafort polling data info.
    You can go argue with Jonathon Karl about his sources. I don't give a fuck. This came out AFTER the Manafort stuff anyways.

    But hey, this anonymous source isn't saying something you want to hear, so fuck him right?

    You canít possibly be serious with this.. can you!?

    Translation: only believe anonymous sources from the far left publications.

    I smell a title rematch in your very near future.

    CNN isn't a far-left publication. They're centrist. But you link shit from Breitbart, the hardest-right news source on the internet. Are you actually this retarded?

    CNN are about as Centrist Dem as they come. That is to say, they're awful. That hack Chris Cilizza specifically should be shot out of a cannon.

    As long as we apply this standard to any story, whether the info appears to help or hurt Trump and his team, I accept your statement.

    I have been saying for months that I want to wait and see what comes out of this investigation before I decide for myself what did or didn't happen.

    It feels strange, sharing something with Candor.

    I donít even think they are centrist dem anymore. They used to be when they reported the news.. now itís all an opinion network.

    Astray, the pedophile demonstrated that the burden of proof lie with the accused, not the accuser, so why don't you prove that you didn't post any Breitbart links, instead?
