Al Jazeera Reporter: Second "Knowledgable And Credible" Source Confirms HGH Sent To Manning House

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.
