Tabloid wikinews?

Jump to: navigation, search

Even if you accept that, this is single person makes shocking revelations, we report them without bothering to question their validity, we just tell both sides. Is this really what WikiNews is going for? What next, "Crazy person says that moon men are stealing his socks!" with a brief paragraph later saying that a single scientist disagrees. Conclusion: I guess we just don't know.

How about "Troll randomly accuses Wikinewsies of lacking journalistic integrity"?

So this is a forum for any random gossip going around?

One source, and not a particularly renouned source at that, counts as rigourous?

I can count to two. Can you? Or, do you mean to tell me that The Belfast Telegraph and The Daily Telegraph are one and the same? One belongs to the publically-traded w:Independent News & Media and the other to the entirely separate w:Press Holdings (which is in turn fully owned by the Barclay Brothers). They are entirely separate.

Also, whilst I do not share it's political position, I can scarcely agree that The Daily Telegraph in particular is anything other than a most respectable paper. Belfast Tele is pretty reasonable, especially by the standards of a lot of English-lang media.

I'm not quite so quick to jump towards 'troll'. I freely admit having my suspicions, however.
