Why No Source?

I was just wondering in recent news articles, nobody credits a source...Why is that?

    If the news comes from a press release or if we receive it direct from a company, there is no other source for it.

    I just saw a news article that looked almost identical to an article in IGN. Just the words were altered a bit. I was just curious. That's all

    My guess would be the stories were written from the same press release, although I don't know. For a more definitive answer, I would email the author of the story in question.

    Rabid plagiarism!

    I dunno, I think the Associated Press puts out like a bulletin that any news sources can quote. I'm not sure about credit though, they should really note the source.

    Err... Okay. I'm not entirely sure what that has to do with anything, but it's good to know.

    Which we do if information doesn't come from a press release or official company source. Handily enough, we do occasionally break stories as well. Anyhow, since this particular thread will only continue to go around in circles, it's done. If you have concerns with a particular story, email the author.
    Whoa! Slow down there, tubby! You're not on the moon yet!
