This article has major problems:

  • The lead has basic problems because you don't tie the article to an actual event. What's the news?
  • The draft article has basic problems with Wikinews style. (I made a few basic fixes to point out some of the problems. Others remain)
  • I don't see any original reporting, notes or comments.Crtew (talk) 18:26, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
  • I don't see any current sources either. --Brian McNeil / talk 21:53, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
  • The PIE CHART currently in the article doesn't have a source listed on it. Remember, that is a must in your graphics work. Crtew (talk) 23:03, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Phone interview with Myranda Wanden[edit]

“I think it [the senate passing the bill] is a step in the right direction to have the amended bill pass, since it grants more liberties than the original. But at the end of the day, I think it's still bad because it fails to legitimize us as human beings, since it's trying to deny us basic rights.”

“I think the rest of the country is moving towards being more open and accepting about gay marriage. I think Indiana, which is a conservative red state, saw this and wanted to resist the changing tide. I think it caused fear in many legislators, but I definitely don't think it's reflective of a majority of the Indiana population.” ==

These are the notes I collected during a phone interview with Myranda Wanden, program director at Indiana Youth Group, an organization that provides support and advocacy for LBGT teens and young adults. Rachristia1 (talk) 23:14, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Most pressing issue is that you need two sources to back up today's news, which should not be difficult for you to get. Order all sources in reference section according to Wikinews style. Separate external links (non Wikimedia Foundation sites), which should be used rarely. Did you really use all of these? If you didn't or if referenced info was removed, delete those references. If you did, point out to the editor which sources were used and where in the body of the text they were used. The number of sources makes a review difficult.

Review of revision 2409430 [Not ready][edit]

Fixed some, what else?[edit]

I updated the article with another very recent source to support the first paragraph and I deleted three sources from the list. I'm new to this whole process, so what else do I need to do?
