The duo famously rely on “deep background” reporting, which means the information can be used but not quoted or directly attributed. That was the condition under which they won a Reid interview, but they flagrantly violated it by directly quoting Reid. You can tell they knew they were breaking the rules by the strange way they presented only parts of sentences instead of full sentences after all, if the interview was on the record and allowed to be quoted, why not share the whole quote? and by the weird attribution of “as he later put it privately.” Privately?

Mothers and fathers alike, regardless of how many children they have, are more likely to support Hillary Clinton in the primaries if they have a daughter.
Purpose of Study White matter injury (WMI) in the extremely low birth weight (ELBW) brain predicts development of cerebral palsy (CP) and other neurodevelopmental deficits. WMI, a disturbance in myelination, features maturation arrested oligodendrocyte progenitor cells (OPCs). Risk factors for WMI and CP include systemic inflammation, but the mechanism linking systemic inflammation to OPC maturation arrest is not understood.
