Illuminating the News for the Students by the Students

Anonymous Source

At the discretion of the editor-in-chief, anonymous sources may be used. When anonymous sources are used, only the reporter and editor-in-chief should know the identity of the source. Of course, it is preferred to use sources who will go on the record, however the publications department understands there are instances when the use of an anonymous source is appropriate. It is the Lamplighter’s policy to NEVER reveal the name of an anonymous source.
