Wikinews strikes again[edit]

It seems more and more people are interested in our reporting. This article that I tagged as publish quickly made headlines, kinda: Neil Entwistle arrested in England Notice the copyright at the bottom of the article. If you click it, it takes you directly to this article. :) Jason Safoutin 00:04, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

This is via Juicee News Daily which selects a number of our articles for reproduction. I believe it has been checked out that they do enough to comply with our license, there's a page for that but I can't remember exactly where. Admittedly, if you look at the non-wikinews articles some appear to just be nonsense, but their duplicates of our articles do get indexed by Google News.--Brian McNeil / talk 00:17, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

Good article,Jason,as usual. I would like to see a different title without the "person of interest" phrase because;

A; Since he has now been charged; the "person of interest" label no longer applies and

B; I have developed a personal distaste for the vague accusatory slurs that US authorities seem to have embraced for media Psyops (big and little p) purposes; things like this one in the domestic "justice" community and "associations with alleged al-queda sympatizers" in the "war on terror" campaign. I don't think we should be using these types of negative references to people, who are actually innocent until proven guilty, unless it's a direct quote; and even then,not in a that's just my opinion.

Do you mind dropping it from the title for reason A if not reason B? Neutralizer 17:19, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

Changed the title while trying to keep it from implying guilt.

Thank you. Neutralizer 17:37, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

Is the quote from the parent-in-laws' lawyer complete (I note it is hyphenated and seems fragmented)? Having watched the BBC news last night, their public statement included sadness and surprise that Mr. Entwistle had been arrested, and their view that he was a loving father and loved son in law? - From the main Wikipedia article on Neil Entwistle: “Rachel and Lilian loved Neil very much. He was a trusted husband and father and it’s incomprehensible how that love and trust was betrayed in the ultimate act of violence."


I'm new to wikinews so i thought i'd post here before just changing it.. Several news outlets say Entwistle bought the ticket to England on the phone, not at Logan airport where he did fly out of. Also should the opening paragraph be in the past tense now?

I agree on the past tense, however, sources stated say that he bought it at the airport...if you can list a source here that says he bought it on the phone, then we could make an edit. Jason Safoutin 03:17, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

Resisted Extradition?[edit]

According to the BBC News report I watched this afternoon, Entwistle has not opposed the extradition and the paperwork will go to the home office, he is expected to be flown to the US next week. --Brian McNeil / talk 19:49, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

Sure, if thats the case, we can change it. I have no problem with that, but the source has to be stated. Jason Safoutin 20:10, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
