Since most news sources tends to be opinionated or agenda-driven, what would happen if anyone could go in and edit the articles? From that question, WikiNews was born.The news can be what you make it, anyone has the ability to go in and edit articles. All of the content can be edited or commented on, and users have the ability to add their own photos. On WikiNews the news is sorted by the most recent edits, with an option to search for articles using keywords.
To be an editor, one has to link to their Facebook and/or Twitter account. Changes in the article can be visually seen by dragging the clock icon in a downwards motion. At any point while dragging, the user can stop to see the changes that were made at that specific time. To get a reliable version of the article, the user just has to drag the clock icon to the bottom to see the original article from Google News.
