Good news.
It is always best to state sources and if your source will not be indentified for some reason....get to work and find a named source. As an example, in this case, before reporting this on the Houston station, the station should have had someone call someone in authority at the U of M (probably the SID) and state "I have this source that states that the U of M has 20 known cases of Covid on the football team. Is this true and can you comment on it? We need to hear your opinion on it's reliability." Journalism 101. If it is proven not to be true...the Houston station is putting out FAKE NEWS that could have easily been checked out. Unfortunately, this happens a lot today. You would think the GM or Program Director at the station would come down hard on whomever was responsible for this bogus story...if in fact it is proven to be fake. The credibility of the station is at stake and coming off so amateurist in a top 10 market is sad. So, whenever you see a story on the Cable TV or TV news channel that states something without a named source, the first thing to ask yourself is "Am I supposed to believe that this reporter is so lazy that he could not find a single named source to verify this story?" I mean NO ONE of twenty people who should have been contacted will verify it is true? This Houston station is owned by GOW MEDIA which is a local Houston company and not one of the major chains like IHeartMedia, Cumulus or Entercom. So maybe they just don't care about what they put out over the air.

Would you put your name on something when you know there WILL be repercussions (Like getting fired or investigated).

FYI...Deep Throat wasn't the guys real name who ratted out Nixon.
I think Deep Throat was VERIFIED by Woodward. I am talking about UNVERIFIED information. If Woodward had found out that Deep Throat was lying to him...I doubt he would have printed the story. Woodward met Felt seven times in the fall of 1972 and the spring of 1973, in a variety of locations: Felt’s house, a Maryland bar, Felt’s FBI office, and — most famously — a parking garage in Virginia. Woodward didn’t take notes while the two were together. As soon as the reporter returned to his office, he typed his memos, stringing together the leads that Felt had given him. A good example of laziness is the WASHINGTON POST and CNN failing to verify the story on Nicholas Sandmann before printing the fake news and putting it on TV. It cost them both megamillions.

RE: 40 Memphis Football Players In Isolation Due To Party Bus
I'm so tired of "living in fear" of this BS. Saw a report today that Sweden, who didn't go in lock down is NOT seeing a surge from a "second wave" like they have built up immunity. Everyone has their opinions but the average age of a COVID death is 78 years old. Life expectancy in the US is 78 years old.... COVID is solely responsible for only 6% of deaths. The other 94% it was a contributing factor from underlying conditions. If people were to practice the same hygiene and precaution (minus a hot or miss flu shot), we would probably have been over with this.

It just disappointing when we have been looking forward to something for so long and $hit like this comes along.

You said NAMED SOURCES not verified...Don't change your story now. You can verify your source without releasing their name which is what Woodward did with DEEP THROAT. Don't you think the reporters know the names of their sources.

Wouldn't you consider a source reliable (Verified) if you get the same story from several locations.

"When you look at the number of excess deaths this year in comparison with previous years, it's staggering," Dr. William Hanage, a professor of epidemiology at Harvard University’s School of Public Health told Live Science. That's an estimated 228,200 additional deaths in the United States, according to the Weinberger Lab at the University of California, San Francisco. Hanage noted that many of the people who have died so far had nonfatal diseases and would not have perished but for contracting the new coronavirus as well. For instance, someone with diabetes or high-blood pressure might have lived decades longer if they had not contracted COVID-19. Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of preventative medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Tennessee, echoed the same reality. "The point is that those people would not have died except that they were carried away by COVID," Schaffner told Live Science.

50% of adult Americans have underlying conditions. Until you watch two loved ones die of it, like I have, you will not understand. Everyone is pizzed because their "entertainment" is on hold, but I am praying for our players, every one of them, no matter how they got this heinous disease, because it can be deadly even in healthy young people, like my cousin.

OMG! This place is a combination of sad and hilarious. You have people that simply have to make it political, people that are absolutely worst case scenario and the "I told you so" crowd that not only doesn't have any real information, never actually told us so.

As far as everything I have read, the players are denying the party bus occurrence. Maybe they didn't know it happened or maybe it never did. Whatever the source of the infections, I think the team cools it until next week and the picks back up and carries forward. Players were held out of the first game and it didn't cost us the game or the season. This won't either.

Would you put your name on something when you know there WILL be repercussions (Like getting fired or investigated).

FYI...Deep Throat wasn't the guys real name who ratted out Nixon.
I think Deep Throat was VERIFIED by Woodward. I am talking about UNVERIFIED information. If Woodward had found out that Deep Throat was lying to him...I doubt he would have printed the story. Woodward met Felt seven times in the fall of 1972 and the spring of 1973, in a variety of locations: Felt’s house, a Maryland bar, Felt’s FBI office, and — most famously — a parking garage in Virginia. Woodward didn’t take notes while the two were together. As soon as the reporter returned to his office, he typed his memos, stringing together the leads that Felt had given him. A good example of laziness is the WASHINGTON POST and CNN failing to verify the story on Nicholas Sandmann before printing the fake news and putting it on TV. It cost them both megamillions.

You said NAMED SOURCES not verified...Don't change your story now. You can verify your source without releasing their name which is what Woodward did with DEEP THROAT. Don't you think the reporters know the names of their sources.

Wouldn't you consider a source reliable (Verified) if you get the same story from several locations.

My comment was based on the story about the 20 Memphis Covid players....which could be verified with a named scource...just call the Memphis SID. As best I could tell, the Houston station did not do that. The vast majority of stories can easily be verifed by a named source. I see lots of stories where an unnamed source states something off the wall and the reporter IMMEDIATELY posts the story without bothering to verify it. Case in point...Nicholas Sandmann. Another is the latest story from THE ATLANTIC from no name sources when there are now 10 NAMED SOURCES that verify the story is fake news. Then there is the Dan Rather story that ruined his career. I can list more stories by lazy reoorters who could have gotten a named source but never bothered to do it, if you want me to. What happeded with DEEP THROAT does not change the points I am making. At least Woodward bothered to verify the information he was given.

A party bus.

On a year when you actually have a chance to make the playoff.

Just stupid.

But hey, that's just par for the course for certain morons.
