USA Today told the same "news" story in April. 82.224.88.52 06:02, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Maybe so, but was the USA today story released under a http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5/ license and was it free to edit by all who wish to edit it? Perhaps when we have the story "US population reaches 400 million" in Wikinews, we can look back on what we thought way back when the population was a "mere" 300 million people. -Hyad 06:44, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
Anyway, if we keep this information, it would be fairer to restore the following... 82.224.88.52 06:23, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

WHO wrote it first ? ? ?[edit]

Ha, so that's why the story wasn't there for October 17. Honestly, I had no idea it was deleted earlier. The way I figure it, even if plently of other people have reported the story already, it is worth it to have a version just for Wikinews. I feel Wikinews should have any big story no matter how many times it has been published elsewhere. That's my two cents anyway. -Hyad 06:44, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
My goal was not to remove your creation but at least to give a full credit to the initial contributor on wikinews. 82.224.88.52 09:08, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
