Junk newsEdit

Hi all, I'm new to Wiki editing and a student, I have just added quite a bit of information to a previously pretty scarce stub for the topic of 'junk news.' I was wondering if anyone could have a look over it and was willing to give any pointers? I'd appreciate any help, thanks! RekNek42 (talk) 07:39, 14 May 2022 (UTC)

Hi There! I'm Brand New Here. Where Is The Most Useful Place For a Newcomer To Start?Edit

Dear WikiProject Journalism friends. I just joined this wikiproject because I think that upholding the reliability of media sources is really the foundation of wikipedia which relies on the veracity of the media. Thank you for the incredible work that you have done and currently do. I'd like to be as useful as I can here. Where would you recommend newcomers like me start? Is it to expand stubs? Is it to refine and improve current pages with basic copy editing tasks. Any guidance from a potential mentor would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to meeting many of you!

Hello. I would like to share a vision for a real-time fact-checking resource: Wikifact. I hope that the project is of some interest to those who contribute to Wikipedia in this journalism portal.

In the not-too-distant future, it may become possible for end-users to fact-check arbitrary portions of documents in word processors and Web browsers simply by selecting content, using context menus, and making use of crowdsourced, collaborative resources such as Wikifact. End-users would be able to select content from social media websites, news articles, digital textbooks, or arbitrary other documents and websites, and then open context menus providing options for exploring, e.g., fact-checking, the content.

I am hoping that more people will express interest on the project proposal’s website. I am hoping to publicize the project proposal. I am hoping to disseminate these ideas.

Please express your support for or opposition to the proposal on the project’s wiki page. We also welcome any of your comments, questions, or feedback with respect to the proposal, in particular ideas for improving it. Please feel free to share any of your ideas in our talk pages.

Thank you, AdamSobieski (talk) 09:42, 11 July 2022 (UTC)

Splitting the editorial board content off the Wall Street Journal articleEdit

Recently a child article of the Wall Street Journal article was created around the paper's editorial board [1]. I think this is a split that could use some review. Please see the discussion here [2]. Springee (talk) 01:27, 5 August 2022 (UTC)

Avisa Partners/Nativiz/iStratEdit

People here may wish to keep an eye on the article Avisa Partners (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs), since it relates to journalism in France and beyond. Boud (talk) 19:08, 6 August 2022 (UTC)

The Points Guy - update assistanceEdit

I suggested a few updates for The Points Guy here Talk:The_Points_Guy#Proposed_Updates_to_Article to help fix the article (missing sources, outdated information, etc.). I’d edit the page myself, but have declared a COI. Is someone from this project able to review the suggestions and update the article accordingly? Thanks.Cheergirl325 (talk) 15:36, 16 August 2022 (UTC)
