There Are Other Ways To Say 'Sources Said'

But you won't read those exact words in that exact order in Newsweek anymore, as the magazine unveild new sourcing protocol. Wonder what creative nomenclature Newsweek will attach to sources from now on.

I'm not a journalist and I don't pretend to be a journalist, let alone a journalism historian, but didn't the rule used to be that before a story would be published it would be corroborated by two independent sources? Is this something I made up based on movies and TV? If this used to be the rule, why and when did journalism move away from that rule?
