why is it so important to determine the credibility of a source?

If you hire a guide to tell you when it is safe to swim in an alligator infested pond, do you think the guide's credibility is of importance? It is no less important when one uses a source to write a story; i.e., the story is useless if the facts given to you by the source came from the rumor mill.

DrBob222 is absolutely correct. And here are a couple of excellent websites to help you learn how to find what's credible and what's not:
