Aaron Klein Anonymous Source Watch
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Aaron Klein asserts in a Jan. 27 WorldNetDaily article that "President Barack Obama has already secretly pledged to the Palestinians he will press Israel into a new round of so-called land-for-peace negotiations." His source? An unnamed, untraceable, anonymous "top Palestinian Authority negotiator." No other backup for his claim is provided, and no named souces whatsoever appear in Klein's article.

It's Klein's longstanding, journalistically questionable practice to hide behind anonymous sources to hurl attacks at the Obama administration.
