Petition for Newspapers and TV stations to name their sources
This petition has been made simply to allow the public to know the sources media companies and in particularly news companies (such as news websites, newspapers and televised news broadcasts) get their information from.
This happens in other societies but not in the UK.
A journalist can report any information and give no more information other than "A source said..."
Disclosing the source of information published would make reporting far more trustworthy and much fairer to the public while allowing accountability for any information printed.
The public deserve trustworthy news and disclosure of source would allow this.
People should be held accountable for the information they disclose.
You can't sign this petition because it is now closed. But you can still comment on it here at Repetition.me!
