What do we mean by “evidence-based journalism”?

I’m a massive fan of the ideal here: if a source waives their anonymity, publish the full A/V source and transcript. Making these easy to consume is also key.

However, you’re not entirely clear on how you avoid the pressure to accept an anonymous source. If a story is huge, and the public need to know it (which, I imagine, will be true of a large number of your stories), there will be a lot of pressure to go with the anonymous source if that is the only thing backing the core of the story.

Internally — your journalists will develop a feeling about how trustworthy an anonymous source is, as you will know their identity and how accurate / truthful they have been in the past. Is there any way we can expose that trust chain to the audience in some way without compromising the identity of the source?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
