Frankly, this is not news. Leave the coverage of celebrity-photo-ops to CNN and People. --Wolfcm (talk) 16:02, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

  • I disrespectfully disagree. This is news. --Brian McNeil / talk 16:08, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
Its news if you are African-American.--KDP3 (talk) 17:23, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
There is not enough here to be news, but some of what Obama was quoted as saying in the USA Today source was thought-provoking and worth reading. This article on its own, though, is not news, to me. --67.174.131.145 (talk) 18:30, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Thanks for some constructive criticism! I'd also disagree with KDP3; this is news for all Americans, not just black ones. --Brian McNeil / talk 18:52, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
I see what you are saying. I was not saying it was not news worthy.--KDP3 (talk) 18:55, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
Would "President McCain celebrates first Grandparents Day in office" have been newsworthy? 206.74.5.136 (talk) 04:13, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
If he made a massive public photo-op out of it, then yes. I don't view this as particularly important news, but it is news nonetheless. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 16:26, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

it is news because it's on wikinews - Dr. Rabbit
