When to source
You must source every statement in every story unless it is an established fact or is information clearly in the public domain, such as court documents or in instances when the reporter, photographer or camera operator was on the scene. Good sources and well-defined sourcing help to protect the integrity of the file from overt outside pressures and manipulation and such hazards as hoaxes.

Former MEPs and their assistants as well as experts from political groups and the EP secretariat are attractive hires for organisations that seek to influence the legislative process of the EU. They often bring a wide professional network and insider experience. MEPs also come with an access badge to the European Parliament that is valid for the rest of their life. The number of MEPs and staff leaving the European Parliament in search of new employment opportunities has been increasing quite significantly over the years.
