Title[edit]

While I as usual consider the title of the article up for grabs to all Wikinewsies, I do not believe the IP's suggestion "Hong Kong Leader's proposal to withdraw the extradition bill causes public outrage" to be a significant improvement. I think it's not exactly what happened. I have no problem whatsoever if any of you think otherwise. Darkfrog24 (talk) 18:02, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

The IP has a point. While your title is in line with the way the sources phrase it, Lam said her government is going to withdraw it, meaning it hasn't happened yet. I don't think a new title needs to be as complicated as they suggest, but a rewording is probably in order. More importantly, however, is the lede. Here it states it in past tense, which seems to be false. --SVTCobra 09:29, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Done. And I will add this second comment on the title does not have the bias problems of the first. So if it's the same anonymous contributor, well done. Darkfrog24 (talk) 12:37, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
