PPH Reporter Wanted Byline Removed

I e-mailed PPH reporter Tom Bell earlier to ask about his involvement in the ugly Cutler Files story in today's paper, which serves up unsubstantiated anonymous charges without backing them up in any way.

The article ran without a byline, but appended to the piece is a note informing readers that Bell contributed to the story.

Here's Bell's reply:

I asked that my byline be removed from the story because there were large portions I did not write and I was uncomfortable with the use of anonymous sources.
