And since we’re all about pointing out how publications get their information for these breaking news alert, let’s let you know how they credited the information:

Hill: “a campaign aide”
NYT: “his campaign…”
Politico: “Democratic sources”
WSJ: AP
MSNBC: AP
ABC: “Senior Edwards adviser”
CNN: “2 sources inside his camp”
LATimes: AP
USAToday: AP

Side question: How many publications learn about it from the AP, call a source to confirm and claim the scoop as their own, even if it is after the AP?
