Wikinews:Style guide

Since Wikinews is an online news source where all articles must be reviewed prior to publication, there is a need for an agreed upon way to present information to readers. This is done with the style guide that reporters are generally expected to adhere to. It includes information about how to use relative dating, how to write headlines, how to attribute information to sources in the text, how to cite sources in the article and how to handle other date and time issues.
