If you are mining twitter for news sources, this could prove to be very useful.

With the caveat that news sources tend to be highly repetitive. If the New York Times says the OPM hack originated in China, a large number of news lemmings will repeat that without a word of doubt or criticism. Still amounts to one unknown source cited by the New York Times. No matter how many times it is repeated.
