'terrorist'Edit

Not that long ago the Muslim Brotherhood was was the legitimate elected government. I also have doubts this is actively 'breaking', a term mainstream sources often (apparently wilfully) conflate with 'just broken'. BRS (Talk) (Contribs) 13:13, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

I finally decided I agree; it's not really "breaking". The meaning of "breaking" being, of course, that the dust hasn't settled yet, i.e., best information is likely to change soon enough after publication that one would update the article itself rather than write a new one. The canonical example would be a disaster where the death tool is likely to rise rapidly; one would report something like "authorities say at least ten people were killed" (attribution, key to accurate/neutral reportage), and then a few hours after publication one might edit that, with sourcing, to a bigger number. --Pi zero (talk) 14:16, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
