All I have to say: Heh. —this is messedrocker (talk) 04:36, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Yeah I'm sure a lot of people don't agree with Chavez. I'm new to Wikinews and I have a question. Who or what determines when an article is published on the main page of Wikinews? --TheLastPuritan 04:46, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Only an article which meets Content guidelines and style guidelines are published. whether articles meet these is determined by a consensus among editors.
in practice, this means that if you are convinced that the article is NPOV and fully sourced (for articles which rely on Original reporting, these are the sourcing requirements) and is categorised, dated and wikified, then u can go ahead and publish it. a careful proofreading is strongly recommended, but don't worry if the odd typo escapes scrutiny. other editors may move it back to development if they see major problems with the article (but they are encouraged to fix the problem instead).
for breaking news situation, style issues in the article may be ignored and the article published, but content guidelines do need to be met. such articles are tagged with a {{breaking}} tag, indicating that they will be developed further, even after publishing. hope this answers ur question.

If you think that an article is ready to publish, add the {{Publish}} tag to the bottom of the page. Otherwise, enter {{develop}}Thunderhead(talk) 19:41, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes I actually found the help page with that info after I asked. I appreciate it though! - --TheLastPuritan 12:52, 14 September 2006 (UTC)


"The U.S. government has maintained that Al-Qaeda orchestrated the attacks under the leadership of Osama bin Laden." This phrase particularly the "has maintained" part doesn't feel quite right, thoughts? Ben 17:26, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

I would say that is an accurate statement.-Maelnuneb 19:39, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Considering there is as much *real* evidence linking Mickey Mouse to the attacks as there is to link Al Quaeda, I think this is accurate. The only problem I have is with putting "aggression" into quotes. If the US' behavior is not objectively aggressive, then I'm not sure I understand what the word means.

The word "aggressive" is in quotes because that is a direct quote from Hugo Chavez- at least that is the translation. You can see so yourself in the cnn video on the raw story source.--TheLastPuritan 21:17, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

This article is highly in favor of Chavez's statement. Is there a defense statement by the US for this? Othewise it is highly POV and nearly minimal. Jason Safoutin 21:27, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

for %^#%^'s sake[edit]

the two sources are the same AP report, which specifically says "Chavez did not specifically accuse the U.S. government of having a hand in the Sept. 11 attacks", while this article says "President Hugo Chavez stated the U.S. government may have planned" (emphasis mine). where's that statement?

this needs a correction issued. Doldrums 11:16, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
