Decisions related to attribution and anonymous sourcing

Journalists give credit for the work of others. They name sources in all but exceptional cases, and can report on people and information in the public realm, including using public information from social media. At the same time they adhere to copyright law. Journalistic standards require giving credit for a photo, a quote, an idea or research quoted in the story.
