Ina July 25 NewsBusters post, Noel Sheppard frowned upon a British newspaper report that an adviser to Mitt Romney said that President Obama "didn’t fully appreciate" the "Anglo-Saxon heritage" that the U.S. and Britain share. Sheppard adds: "Notice how none of the advisers including the one quoted were named."
Sheppard used to not have problems with anonymous quotes in British newspapers. In a 2007 post, Sheppard touted how a British newspaper attacked a speech by Al Gore, failing to mention that the person making the attack remained anonymous.
Funny how a British newspaper practice suddenly becomes offensive when it's used against a political ally, huh?
