Talk:US Court of Appeals reduces sentence for former Philippines officer in spy case

I CREATED this interesting news article on Philippine spy case. I am Philippines Judge Florentino Floro, having registered with Wikinews on December 3, 2008, and is a Wikinews:Editor as of January 12, 2009.

In having written more than "64 articles" (here - User:Florentino Floro/MyList and in Wikipedia Encyclopedia User:Florentino Floro/MyList2), I live with my Philosophy and hope to elevate Wikinwews to the phenomenal success of Wikipedia encyclopedia, by writing very comprehensive, detailed and fully synthesized news, amid collaboration of editors and the final touch of the reviewer. Please do not be annoyed if sometimes, (due to stress and human factor - plus the fact that as lawyer and judge, I never ever had enrolled in any journalism subject), I would tend to relax the copyright rules and style guide, but, without however, violating the SPIRIT AND INTENT of both international law of copyright, and Wikinews rules on style guide. REST ASSURED, that in writing every news article, I VALUE fairness, justice, integrity and honesty. This is what NEWS WRITING is all about. Please help in publishing this news. Cheers.--Florentino Floro (talk) 11:35, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your trust and hard work-reviewEdit

To contradict CriticismEdit

While it is true that amateurs, vandal and idiots, including professionals had written-edited both Wikipedia Encyclopedia and Wikinews, the same Criticism remains, because of the ENVY called mercantile jealousy by stupid encyclopedia Giants who are loosing to ONLINE and who were amazed by the phenomenal success of Jimbo Wales. Here[1] "Like Wikipedia (see Criticism of Wikipedia), Wikinews is criticized for its perceived inability to be neutral or include only verified and true information. Robert McHenry, former editor-in-chief of the Encyclopædia Britannica criticized the credibility of the project - [Wikinews] has sunk into a kind of torpor; lately it generates just 8 to 10 articles a day... On bigger stories there's just no point in competing with the ruthless purview of the encyclopedia."

So, I began to ponder, why should I just read 2 sources like a BBC and NYT, and then write the story in my own words? Who will read this? There are already about 20 to even 1,000 articles on Australia Bush Fires, and the like. So, when I read Wikinews style guide, it says: synthesis - which you can never find in any other written news reports worldwide.
I admit that in news articles outside crime, law and jurisprudence, I could not be called pundit or authority on this. But, but, but, when I write in depth legal news (not legal or encyclopedic legal articles as I did write on Wikipedia Encyclopedia) synthesized not only from news sources but from the very original court decisions and original web site links, then, I can say with certainty, that my developed, reviewed and published news articles, can be cited as LEARNED TREATISES under the Rules on Evidence (USA and Philippines rules on this are almost the same).
If you read this article on Michael Rey Aquino, you will find that this is not about espionage really. Aquino was accused of killing Dacer-Corbito - as brain of charring or burning the remains and wiping out evidence. So he and the other 2 (Mancao, Dumlao) fled to the USA (but Philippines has extradition treaty with US). In the course of the flight from justice, Aquino was involved in the espionage thing of Aragoncillo - there is nothing in life that is free, taking a cue from Deny's Diner. Aquino was used by the Philippine opposition at that time. Many of them predicted that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo would be deposed, but false prophets failed. So, Aquino, Aragoncillo Dumlao and Mancao now had it. Well, if our President is deposed, or if Hilary Clinton won, all these 4 could have been freed by legal niceties. IN FINE, this news article is BIG, and will have a sequel, like an legal novel. Cheers.--Florentino Floro (talk) 08:22, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
