On the campaign trail in the USA, May 2020[edit]

Oops; have hit a snag (apologies for not catching it sooner): review comments. --Pi zero (talk) 20:40, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

verifying details on On the campaign trail in the USA, May 2020[edit]

A few points I'm aware of being unable to verify from cited sources, so far:

  • Mohr is chair of the Michigan Tax Payers party. (This is so prominent, I haven't yet had the nerve to cut it; I know of a source that confirms it, but it's not cited, and as an independent reviewer I'm particularly not supposed to add sources.)
  • Mohr was a candidate for the party in those four state elections. The aforementioned source says he joined the party in 2005, which makes it more likely but still, technically, wouldn't guarantee it.
  • Blankenship's conviction was a misdemeanor. There's a cited (I think) source in which Blankenship denies having been convicted of a felony, which however, given the other controversial things he says there, establishes only that Blankenship says that, which seems like it'd be clumsy to say.

I'm also concerned about statements at the top and bottom of the summary, because of the sources I haven't processed yet, I'm not seeing any that seem likely to help with them:

  • "At the beginning of May, with stay-at-home orders easing in some states"
  • "By the end of the month, with coronavirus deaths surpassing 100,000 and protests and riots related to the death of Floyd spreading throughout the nation" (we have an article about passing 100,000, but it would need to be cited under Related news).

I have added four new sources and placed the Wikinews article about the 100,000 deaths into the related articles.--William S. Saturn (talk) 09:14, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

  • The Clyburn item isn't in the cited sources afaict.

--Pi zero (talk) 14:55, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Didn't see the disinfectant-in-the-body thing in the cited sources.

I've completed all but the checking of the interviews (which should be really easy to do, unless of course there's some technical glitch in which case it could be a show-stopper); I'll be attending other review for the next few hours, then hopefully I'll be able to finish yours up and publish this evening US time (somewhat after midnight, UTC). --Pi zero (talk) 19:39, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Clyburn material has been removed.  Seems like the statement was after Biden's backtracking.  I added a source for the disinfectant comment still being an issue in May.--William S. Saturn (talk) 21:15, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Published. --Pi zero (talk) 23:35, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the review. I appreciate it.--William S. Saturn (talk) 23:37, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

ArbCom election 2020[edit]

As a current Arb, would you be willing to stand for Arbcom again this year? If you don't wish to nominate yourself, I would be happy to nominate you. --Pi zero (talk) 16:54, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
