Atlantic Editor: Twitter Mob Keeps Sources Anonymous

Politico reports:

The Atlantic’s Jeffery Goldberg told MSNBC on Monday night that he believes “fear on a kind of superficial level of a Twitter mob” and a “fear of personal safety” kept his anonymous sources from going public with their allegations that Trump called fallen service members “losers” and “suckers” in 2018.

Goldberg was pressed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes during an interview Monday night about the sources. He said he had pressed the sources to go on the record and also mentioned November’s presidential election as a reason some may not have wanted to do so.
