The Wikinewsie Group bylaws draft 
A copy of the draft bylaws for the The Wikinewsie Group have been posted at The Wikinewsie Group/Bylaws. Alongside these, a Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Journalists have also been posted, which detail our understanding of concepts found in the draft bylaws. Feedback would be appreciated on these. If you agree with them and have no suggestions for modification on one or both documents, please comment on Bylaws talk page or Declaration talk page to say so. Conversely, if you are interested in joining The Wikinewsie Group, please feel free to comment on the relevant talk page with feedback on what changes you might like to see. Thank you. --LauraHale (talk) 04:24, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
MacNeil/Lehrer Journalism 
- Our policies come at these issues from a different angle. Of the items on that list, the ones that don't use the word "assume" look fairly sound. See WN:Never assume. We don't do opinion or analysis, so that doesn't apply. We do write for an intelligent audience. --Pi zero (talk) 16:58, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
