Beware of unnamed sources

Skepticism is the watchword. Right now the Republicans are on a wave that promises to wash many sitting Democrats into oblivion but the left is good a creating dissension where none exists. I fell for this myself as it was reported on Breibart but it was wrong. Supposedly Mitch McConnell attacked the Tea Party, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz on a conference call with Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS donors.
McConnell said the Tea Party was ‘nothing but a bunch of bullies,’” the source said. “And he said ‘you know how you deal with schoolyard bullies? You punch them in the nose and that’s what we’re going to do.
Except he didn't say it. The Washington Examiner has obtained an audio file of the entire 27 minute conference call and the Tea Party, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz are not mentioned. Be careful of unnamed sources.
