What counts as a credible news source in comments?

[CW: linked thread contains graphic descriptions of assault.] First let me say this isn't meant as a callout, this isn't personal in any way. How do people feel about comments linking to the National Enquirer as a primary news source? In the Kevin Spacey thread, this comment links to a National Enquirer article claiming Charlie Sheen was one of Corey Haim's assaulters. I think we should have higher standards for news sources. (Bat Boy is fine!) There is support for it in the thread and it's not really a big deal to the mods, but I'm curious what the community thinks. (I know they occasionally break a real news story, but why is this story so urgent that we can't wait until a credible source reports this?)

What's wrong with worldnetdaily?

What's wrong with worldnetdaily? I posted a link to an article that really frightened me, and it was taken down. The message I received was: "worldnetdaily? Come on." Granted, from the little I read afterwards from the site, they are a little right of Attila the Hun, but probably no further right than yellowtimes or commondreams is left...

What gives? I'd like to know more about what worldnetdaily isn't taken seriously...
