Re: Editorial "Anonymity has no place in election."
I must disagree with your assertion that anonymity has no place in a democracy. Without anonymous whistleblowers, most government corruption would not be uncovered. Should we have allowed Watergate to go unpunished and stopped paying attention because Deep Throat would not identify himself?
The Gazette's own editorial writers are never identified by name so saying they are is completely false.
The only issue is whether the information being provided is factual.
