Cognitive bias.

Source bias is an unconscious social bias.

It gives undue weight to the sources of information.

Scrutiny avoided

"Sometimes the source of information becomes more important than the information itself, and avoids any serious challenge, doubt or scrutiny."
The Treasurer magazine, December 2018 / January 2019, p41 - Dr Pete Jones, Chartered Psychologist.
