Deborah Davies, the Al Jazeera reporter responsible for last week’s documentary that alleged human growth hormone was delivered to Peyton Manning’s home, revealed today on CNN’s Reliable Sources that a second confidential source confirmed what the network was told by a former employee of an Indianapolis anti-aging clinic.

Davies told host Brian Stelter that the second “impeccably placed, knowledgable, and credible” source wasn’t included in The Dark Side: Secrets of the Sports Dopers because the source was confidential and could not be named; the network only used the source to corroborate Charlie Sly’s statements captured on a hidden camera. Those statements included the allegation that HGH was repeatedly shipped to Manning’s house in Florida as well as other locations.
