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

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)

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)
