Keep flagging those stories

Another columnist resigns over questions about her sources -- this one from the Sacramento Bee.

A column from editor Rick Rodrigues says:
"[Diana] Griego Erwin has said throughout the inquiry that there was no fabrication of sources. When asked to provide confirmation, however, she was unable to do so to our satisfaction. She resigned citing personal reasons while still maintaining that her sources ultimately will be proved authentic. ...

Our inquiry began when an editor flagged a Griego Erwin column more than two weeks ago that had inadequate sourcing and, after discussions with other editors, that column was held. Because of that, we decided to delve into other columns that had appeared in print in recent months. We will continue to do so.
