The term blind item defined by Wikipedia:

A blind item is a news story, usually gossip, in which the details of the matter are reported while the identities of the people involved are not revealed. The invention of the blind item is credited to William d'Alton Mann (1829 – 1920), publisher of Town Topics, who often used it for blackmail.
