MeFi in the time of Trump - managing news

Like many, I was simultaneously hooked and exhausted by the pre-election rolling thread. I was very much looking forward to its demise. It's going to be a long four years. Can we find a way to keep the good and ease the pressure? [more inside]

Has "news.metafilter.com" ever been considered?

Has MetaFilter ever considered or discussed the idea of having a News subsite? A MetaNews sub for posting things that might otherwise be considered Newsfilter, and therefore Detestable Front Page Clutter? [more inside]

Breaking news - Not any more?

This post on the shooting of three Mounties was deleted with the reason that we should wait until the situation has been resolved before posting. I don't have a problem with that per se but it seems like a serious departure from previous policy on huge breaking news stories (and this story is massive in Canada) for a post that was, IMO, well constructed with authoritative sources and even video of the event. Has there been a shift in policy to curtail discussion of breaking news until all the details are in? More generally should we be moving away from giving stories like these time on the front page until they move off the 24 hour news cycle? [more inside]

Why no airplane terrorist post?

I'm curious about why nobody posted anything to the front page about the foiled terrorism attempt on the 25th. [more inside]

Is MeFi the new digg?

What are the rules for posting to MeFi? Ive noticed that many posts are news articles and many of the op/ed posts get snarked or berated for not being newsworthy... I thought this was "best of the web"? I for one will read digg if I want news and MeFi if I want to find interesting web articles...

Bad newsfilter post.

This is why single link newsfilter posts are bad.

Should MetaFilter have another section called MetaNews?

Should MetaFilter have another section called MetaNews to keep the geopolitical stuff separated from the quirky best of web stuff?

Newsfilter as FPPs

Predictions: I just noticed the news, "White House to Let Rice Testify in Public" on AP. How long until this becomes an FPP. Doesn't it seem lately that every piece of news is getting posted? Where does one draw the line between news that should be an FPP and news that shouldn't

Newsfilter

I wonder ... should Matt just put a quick link to the Washington Post and the Guardian on top MetaFilter, and suggest that their discussion boards be used to discuss their articles?

Local News Links... why????

I don't like the idea that Metafilter has turned into a news portal. But I'll learn to live with that, it seems to be what most people like. But now we're linking local news? Isn't there a better place for residents of Bradford to discuss pending bus stop proposals? In the name of God, why? Why why why?

20 out of 27 posts yesterday were news pieces.

Of yesterday's 27 posts, no fewer than 20 of them were links to news sites or concerned recent events or happenings.

Too much Ananova.

Could we have a moratorium on Ananova links for now? While other news sources have not been dead on, they seem to be way off base more than others. There are quite a few reading Mefi right now, and disinfo from what looks like a credible source could hurt.
