I would expect you not to name sources! Thats called Journalistic Integrity. Yeah people who wanted him to name sources, I know its a couple of big words but go look it up :P If a journalist starts naming sources the future would-be sources won't talk and then he would be writing about stuff we all knew about already.As for the patch I guess if its not tonight then they are getting too close to Blizzcon and Im sure they want the bugs worked out before that event. Does anyone foresee the same amount of issues as the mid expansion patch of BC? I didn't get on the PTR this time (mostly because I didn't have time to be useful on there) so I can't speak to the readiness of the patch.It would be nice but I am a little skeptical

Journalistic integrity would also say to reveal the sources.The people (in this case, the gamers) have a right to know said what, when and how as well as where from if necessary. Even saying "a blizzard insider" for me, at least, is good enough.

We have no such rights, journalists don't have to tell us anything. You're welcome to doubt what they say, and indeed not knowing their sources would give you plenty of reason to do so. Personally I don't think they'd be making this claim if their sources weren't pretty good, but that's just me.

@LouLul wut?How old are you? Seriously. Journalists have gone to jail instead of revealing sources. "Sources" are the way major corporate and political news stories get broken and the consequences for the sources are pretty serious. Journalist-source confidentiality is up there with doctor-patient confidentiality (most governments don't see it that way because they don't like their dirty laundry getting aired).
