Ad Nags Whores Anonymous

There are reasons for anonymous sources. This is certainly not one of them.

A senior White House official, who insisted on anonymity in discussing the early phases of the nomination, echoed Mr. Sessions and other Republicans on the Judiciary Committee, saying, "There has been a long-term standard that the appropriateness of questioning does not include asking judges to take specific sides or positions regarding cases they may hear one day."

Administration officials pushing the official administration line should never be allowed to maintain anonymity. Why a lowly online magazine publisher needs to point this out is beyond me...
