While less spectacular, unrest is more accurate than crisis. Toby.

Belizian's Contribution[edit]

Belizian has provided most of the content for this article (along side superb photographs), the rest being added by me today [1] based on what I heard on the radio [2] last night during the governmental debate. --BesigedB 02:11, 23 Jan 2005 (UTC)

"What the reporter did: observe the protests, describe his observations, and take photos. (This was a scoop on the western mainstream media.)"

I take it this was the first scoop by Wikinews. It might be nice to create Wikinews:Scoop and list this and future scoops there. It would serve as a feature and a way of boosting morale on Wikinews even further. Also, we could create a modified version of {{Original reporting}} for scoops, like {{Original reporting - Scoop}}, and possibly a category, though I may be getting ahead of myself here. -- Redge (Talk) 13:16, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)

I believe this was the first really big scoop of major news media on a major subject. I suspect we're getting a little ahead of ourselves here, perhaps, with creating a scoop category/template... One other question to consider: What is a scoop? if a subject is not covered by main steam media (because it's too localized a subject, to small a topic, etc.) does it count? I would love to see all the little league games of <fill in neighbourhood here> covered, but I'm not sure each story would count as a scoop. - Amgine 15:54, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)

What about April unrest?[edit]
