93/10/30: "Sound legal advice" (Editorial), Editor & Publisher Magazine, at 4 (available in LEXIS-NEXIS News Library):

"A NEW YORK lawyer had some good advice last week when he told reporters and editors that if they were going to 'mask' their confidential sources to protect them, they should do it correctly and completely.

"The trouble, Lawrence Savell wrote (E&P, Oct. 23, p. 3), is that reporters are trying to give readers a more complete picture of their confidential sources to bolster their credibility and in so doing are rendering their unnamed sources easily identifiable based on information disclosed in the article. He cited a complicated case involving that issue.

"Savell's advice is that writers discuss in advance with their sources the actual descriptions to be used and get the sources' approval in writing. That shouldn't be difficult, and it will save lawyers a lot of work and headaches as well as saving publishers money."
