Sources have been the lifeblood of journalism. Information from government official, experts, eyewitnesses, victims, celebrities or even ordinary citizens has flowed though the veins of news stories carrying messages to readers since the newspaper began. Sources have infused articles with shape and substance. They have fleshed out details of a story and added character and credibility to news accounts and features. Without sources, potential stories have shriveled and died.
