During a speech to CPAC President Trump decried unnamed sources and told the crowd that the media shouldn't be allowed to source unless they use somebody's name. While saying some journalists are honest, Trump accused major news organizations of publishing news fiction by making up sources. Many in the media defend anonymity, as protecting the jobs and families of informants is essential when investigating stories on government dysfunction and corruption as was the case in Watergate, Iran-contra, the Clinton impeachment and many other scandals.
