Come on...


... shouldn't we really think about licensing?

This is a really nice article, and kudos to the people who put it together - I wouldn't have read the news were it not here. But to be fair, the Wikipedia article that it's good enough to link to is in far greater depth. Why not allow ourselves to copy and paste from there! Sean Heron (talk) 21:25, 29 June 2009 (UTC)Reply

We can't due to license incompatibilities. --Brian McNeil / talk 08:42, 3 July 2009 (UTC)Reply

I am concerned that the article says "Zelaya was attempting to change the constitution via a constitutional referendum to allow himself to be re-elected following the 2009 Honduran political crisis.", implicating that the referendum was a bid for Zelaya to remain in power. The wikipedia site for the Honduran political crisis states that Zelaya was not attempting to extend his own rule, and that the referendum on rewriting the constitution was to do with other issues, and he would not have been eligible for running for president. Furthermore, the 2009 political crisis followed Zelaya's attempt to hold a constitutional referendum, rather than the other way around as this article has reported. I am concerned that this article is merely repeating without question the same position advanced by the western media, rather than keeping to the impartial standard which I have come to expect of wikinews. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:19, 3 July 2009 (UTC)Reply
