If you recall, every item that Deep Throat gave up was double and triple checked before it went to print. That does not seem to be the NY Post's operating standard.
How could it be double and triple checked if his identity was to be kept secret?

I will give you the simplest possible example in the pious hope that it will be understood.

On the condition that they remain anonymous, "A" tells "B" that "C" who isn't supposed to have "D" does, in fact, have "D" and has it hidden in their backpack.

"B" then approaches "C" and asks "C" to remove their backpack.

"B" then searches that backpack and discovers "D".

"C", in fact, is not supposed to have "D".

The anonymous statement that "C", who isn't supposed to have "D" does, in fact, have "D" and has it hidden in their backpack has been confirmed.

I understand that you repeat your party's line, but you cannot point out any articles at the NYTs or WaPo that have been shown to be false.

Surely you jest...

The two journalists had many sources in the government and white house. They would ask a knowledgable source if they could confirm a fact from Deep Throat. Didn't you read the book a long time ago?

I believe that the "officially approved" response to your position runs along the lines of

"What?!? You propose to "verify" what an anonymous (and therefore untrustworthy) source says by taking the word of another anonymous (and therefore untrustworthy) source? You HAVE to be kidding."

Anonymous sources are not untrustworthy when the information they provided is vetted and verified by other sources. It comes down to the reputation of the news organization and whether they bother to stand behind what they publish.

And you feel that the NY Post has a solid reputation?

True, the Post is know for it's sensationalism, which is why I think the DOJ should offer the person complete immunity if they will come forward and testify to what they know... If it is a fake story, nobody will come forward. If it's real, they may come forward and we discover how extensive mail in voting fraud really is and how we can prevent it.

Would you agree with such a move?

.

Is it really so hard to grasp that the majority of U.S. voters are not receptive to Trump messaging, which is what this is, delivered via the print version of Trump TV, a limitless Murdoch Corp. partisan campaign contribution? Dab a hankey over your crocodile tears.

Second example, the majority is not worried about outbreaks of urban violence if Biden is elected because Biden is the obvious solution to Trump stoked urban violence.
