Problematic reporting

Jump to navigation Jump to search

I've commented in favor of Wikinews at two of the places he canvassed about this on Wikipedia. [1] [2] I hope that people here will take heart that their coverage of this important cause is valuable and welcome, and not be intimidated by those who would try to punish them for not self-censoring their content to avoid undermining a mad party line that harms millions of people.

Our editorial voice is our neutrality; we take no "editorial stance" on issues. We can and do cover newsworthy events that a contributor has the will and wherewithal to cover. There's zero chance of our being intimidated out of doing so; and they're just trolls, after all. They make this stuff up out of whole cloth.

The actual discussion Adam has started over on Wikipedia isn't worth getting overly-involved in. Particularly with the willful misreading of who wrote what on Wikinews. The discussion is for Fringe Theories on Wikipedia; the relevant single-word correction has been made here, so leaving our detractors to rant and troll there is the best thing to do. Saner heads on Wikipedia will eventually conclude they're being disruptive for no net gain.
