actually its something alot of people have been arguing for , for quite sometime - dupe threads to be closed quicker , and worthy news not simply reposting blogs
The only problem with this is that for example, I have had the problem of posting a breaking news story, about a bill being passed the same day I posted the article in the Breaking news. The article, and link were directly from Congress, and the moderator that moved it to "Politics" said it was a blog, when the link was not a blog. It was a link to a breaking story directly from CONGRESS. Congress links are not blogs last I checked, and if ATS is now only going to accept news after they come up on CNN, or whatever other news network this will only become a CNN, "insert name" afiliated news network, and not ATS anymore imo.
