Talk:Bin Laden's former driver convicted of supporting terrorism
I'm all for giving credit where credit is due, but I'm wondering about how much we have to credit our sources within an article ... In this article nearly every paragraph contains something like "the Associated Press reported ...", "According to Reuters...", "multiple news agencies reported". Must we give the source for every fact, or does it suffice to name the sources in a list at the bottom?
- Since I started and wrote quite a bit of the article, I can't say I'm 100% positive on the protocol here, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.—Calebrw (talk) 20:49, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
- You don't need to quote explicitly each agency or newpapers for each chunk of information (a bit heavy for my taste), but if it's your writer's style why not even it's not my way of writing (when i write). As long sources are available in the right paragraph, the style is free (read older article as sample is good too). As long the article is readable, no problemo.
