Anonymous Sources in the Media

When do people ask for anonymity? Why? After reading the New York Times article "For a Reporter and a Source, Echoes of Broken Promise," young readers participate in a roundtable discussion focusing on freedom of the press and the use of anonymous sources. This lesson would be great to open a persuasive or journalistic writing unit or to practice a discussion format.
