I sent the fax to Betsy Mason, and here's her reply.

I would like to write about this, but until I can talk to someone, even if it is off the record, that is behind this letter, I hesitate to take it seriously. If you know anyone involved, please encourage them to contact me and assure them I will respect their privacy if need be.

I'd suggest those behind the fax get in touch with her.

She added today 4/23:

Yes, I absolutely can be trusted. I have no interest in getting anybody fired or in any kind of trouble. I've been able to convince editors in the past to let me use anonymous sources when there is a legitimate reason. Nobody will argue with me that pending layoffs aren't a legitimate reason. My story about the declining morale at the lab a few months back had anonymous sources, and that was because they feared for their jobs.

Couldn't agree more

The threat of losing your job deters many from opening up to the press. Can she be trusted?

All that really needs to be done is for people to e-mail you directly. They can get a gmail address where you do not have to give your name or any information to get an account, just NEVER us that user name or e-mail account for anything other than communicating with a person of choice and never ever post any information you don't want traced.
