Politico ‘reporter’ Jonathan Martin on unnamed sources – If you don’t want to read Politico, that’s fine (Video)
Don’t worry Journ-O-Lister Jonathan Martin. Poltiico has been bleeding web site traffic for months, so many people are tired of your bullsh*t with ‘unnamed sources’ bashing Paul Ryan and others, and aren’t reading your propaganda leftist site Politico. He flat out told CNN that if you don’t like Politico’s use of ‘unnamed sources’ then don’t read Politico. You got yourself a deal Johnny!
“We were candid about the sourcing on that, as you mentioned, Howie, and basically say to our readers, ‘Look, folks don’t want to put their names [on] the charges,’” Martin said. “If you don’t want to read Politico, that’s fine. But that is a conversation happening in the political community. We as reporter want to capture that conversation. The challenge for us is trying to do so in a way that you can get it in print, but you respect people who don’t want to have their names used, it’s a question of do you not report what’s happening right now in the political operative community or do it in a way that you have to do a lot of blind quotes? We choose the chose the latter, because it’s such a hot issue going on right now.”
