I don't think that either

In reply to: I don't think Mortensen allows Armstrong to tell him...  posted by ndroman21

but I would imagine that he would check with him as a source (at a minimum) on a story like this. Perhaps someone else mentioned his name in passing (hell, Mort is not the only reporter that has mentioned Kelly's name in the past few weeks) and Mort checked in with Trace. Perhaps Trace started the rumor and someone else friendly to the thought passed it on.

To think that Mort wouldn't at least touch base with the agent is silly.
