Who Do You Trust?

via lemurking.files.wordpress.com

This time of year, those of us with no sources of our own rely on real reporters with real sources and real access to real information to keep us up-to-date on the Crucial Matters of the Day, by which of course I mean trade rumors. But we've long since left the world where we had to rely on our local newspaper, a local TV station (if we were lucky), and maybe some imported news like the New York Times or the Hockey News. And we more or less had to believe everything we read (since it was all we got). Frankly, as a kid, if I got hold of a rumor from a column in the Detroit Free Press, I clung to it for dear life.

Now, of course, we have a buffet of rumors that stretches to infinity, and it's frequently hard to tease out the real news from the noise. (usage note: switching metaphors mid-stream is required of sourceless bloggers.) 

I've been trying to think of an excuse to use my little poll button. I think this is a good place to start. [update: turns out the poll button on the SB Nation interface doesn't allow multiple selections; on to Poll Daddy.] Please select as many names as apply, and write in "other" (and name names) if I missed someone, which I'm sure I did.
