    Sources like Scooter Libby?
  2. Whoever your source happens to be, if you believe the story was a public service and deserved to see the light of day. Every case is different, every person is different.

    Well, I think the spirit of the idea is to protect people who need protection, not disgruntled political figures carrying a grudge.

    and who was carrying a grudge against Bonds?
  5. Mark Felt was a disgruntled political figure carrying a grudge. So are some of our best sources for accurate information.

    Just thinking out loud ... While I'm guessing it wouldn't be the most honest thing to do ... and journalistically it wouldn't be the right thing to do ... what's to stop Fainaru-Wada and Williams from simply saying "It showed up on our desks. We don't know who sent it."

    If everyone REALLY has signed sworn declarations denying disclosure, how could this case proceed?

    For the record, Mark was in the '90s if I recall. He covered Stanford football the year they made it to Pasadena under Willingham.
