    Drew Cloud Is a Well-Known Expert on Student Loans. One Problem: He’s Not Real.

    i can't really fault the news sources for citing them as a reference, but man alive, when the website was confronted, the "person" faded fast. they should have just said he's a fictional character on the site designed to give base info - for more details please see xyz "real" people.
