What's a Source Worth?
In this clip from the film All the President's Men, two newspaper reporters are about to publish an article accusing the then chief of staff, H.R. Haldeman, of committing crimes from within the White House. The executive editor wants to make absolutely sure that the reporters' sources are reliable and trustworthy. The reputation of his newspaper, the Washington Post, is at stake. He's not sure he can publish the article. The city editor makes a suggestion to the reporters. What does he suggest? (Hint: It's the last line in the clip!)
