From Wikinews, the free news source you can write!

I don't think we should be reporting about ourselves, unless there's some really newsworthy thing that happens with Wikinews (i.e. a reporting scandal, or whatnot). -- IlyaHaykinson 00:53, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Agreed. A self-referential story is boring, and potentially confusing.
I roll my eyes when supposedly objective news outlets (usually the smaller ones) write about coverage of themselves in a "news" story. It always turns out to be little more than thinly-veiled self-congratulation for being recognized by another news outlet. It also appears rather amatuerish.
What's next - trackbacks? If I wanted to contribute to a blog, I would contribute to a blog. Wikinews is not a blog. — DV 14:48, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)

If Wikinews already is a news item it should be free to report on it self, sticking to the facts. But i agree there is now reason to start reporting on every news report or blog on Wikinews. 12:18, 17 Feb 2005 (manual timestamp, you can timestamp your comments by typing ~~~~ - Amgine 16:01, 17 Feb 2005 (UTC))
