Original reporting[edit]

I watched the televised broadcast of the press conference live, and took notes. Uncle G (talk) 18:01, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

  • Per WN Policy, could you add as much of those notes as possible. Thanks Calebrw (talk) 20:52, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
    • They are on paper. I wrote them with a pen. In handwriting. When WN policy provides a slot that I can upload a piece of paper through a WWW browser, then I might be able to. ☺ Uncle G (talk) 02:51, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
      • As per discussions here, here and here this is not original reporting. --Killing Vector (talk) 14:24, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
        • Uncle G, do you think you could possibly type your handwritten notes into the computer and save them here? OR notes should be extensive. Tempodivalse [talk] 23:13, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
          • Uncle G is "old skool" Wikinews and has largely been absent for two years. G may not be used to our renewed efforts at verifiability in order to get listed on Google News. But nonetheless, notes need to be presented or sent to Scoop. If handwritten they can be scanned. --SVTCobra 23:27, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
            • I have always been told, and to this day, that watching a government press conference like NASA, White House, or such, local or not, was like being at the conference itself. I have never had the issue, though I generally have a habit of posting the events as they happen on the talk page of the article. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 02:22, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
            • We knew about original reporting back then, too, kiddo. But it doesn't change the fact that there is no slot on my WWW browser into which I can insert a piece of paper. You can have a typed transcript of what I wrote down if you really want it, but it will look like gibberish, I warn you now. After all, the notes were simply aides memoire, given that I started writing as the press conference was tailing off (as one can tell by the timestamp on the first edit).

Review[edit]

This is so out-of-sequence, not to mention stale. Barack Obama presents rescue plan after GM declaration of bankruptcy happened after this and was published three days ago. --SVTCobra 02:46, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
