Cautions

  • The tracker searches for commonly used phrases used to identify anonymous sources so misses anonymously sourced articles that do not use those phrases.
  • Some matches are false and the article is not anonymously sourced.
  • Some articles are duplicates because they appeared on multiple news sites. These are typically from wire services.
  • Some articles are duplicates because they have different urls but come from the same news site.
  • Some articles refer to anonymous sources but are not themselves anonymously sourced.
  • Articles that do not have a publication date in Google search results or the URL are not included.
  • The tracker does not distinguish between good use and misuse of anonymous sources.
