Well Informed Sources

Journalists focus on finding the most interesting and accurate information possible. One of the best ways they can do this is by reaching out to well-informed sources, or sources who have a lot of knowledge regarding a specific subject or event. In most cases, these are a journalist's first resort when looking for information on a story, as they often know a lot more than can be found anywhere else. Well-informed sources can be anyone from a subject matter expert on a certain topic to an eyewitness of an event, as long as they have a wide scope of information.
