Will disagree here. Big media outlets use and cite anonymous sources alot in big stories.

How else would they get nitty, gritty details and facts?

I believe that their "source" is very close to Te'o or his family.

Tiger was definitely getting laid. Maybe Te'o was too, but by guys.

Well, nothing I've read about the story makes sense to me but... quoting a single anonymous source's opinion with no specific evidence to refute is probably tantamount to the writer inserting their own opinion.

not sources that are "80%" sure of something, that was a crappiest part of an otherwise well researched piece.

But you can't "out" a source or you'll lose any kind of credibility you have as a journalist. Nobody else would ever trust you in the future.

This dude Te'o has provided me with entertainment to the same degree that Pokemon brought joy to me when I was in 4th grade.
shite is just getting better and better, by the moment.
