  3. No! A human being. An expert on the subject the journalist has interviewed in person, in real time. You identify the source by name and his/her position, as in the county prosecutor or the city's environment department head, etc.

  5. The source might also be a written statement from the human source, as in:

    "Ottawa County Sheriff Mary Jones said in a written statement that she is 'pursuing all clues to the murder.'"

    In any case, a human source must be identified by name and position.

  8. Yes, or a medical expert who can explain the condition, or anyone who can provide expertise on the topic. Identify the person my name and position. " Johnny's mother says..." Or, "Dr. Theodore McNutt, professor at the Hope College School of Medicine..."

  9. former professional American football running back John Cappelletti spoke to the dancers about losing his brother, Joey, to leukemia ten years earlier, and the event that year raised more than $95,000 ?? is this a good one

  10. Well, more or less, yes. Identifying the football player as such establishes his celebrity. The fact that his brother died of leukemia establishes his "bona fides" to talk about the issue. You need to have identified the event, too. I'm GUESSING it was a fund raiser for leukemia research and not stray pets or something else?

  11. The point of identifying both name and position for a human source is to give due credibility to what he or she has to say about the topic at hand. Joe Smith, garbage collector, may not have much expertise on climate science, but a professor in that field at the university may have some credibility in knowing what she's talking about.
