For news, I was thinking we have a sticky at the top, where anyone can just post links to current events, a link and a short blurb. The forum has a syndicate option, so people can choose to get updates from the news thread via RSS. Would be sort of a 'curated' news service that you're able to get on computer/phone. Then discussion on particular news can happen in other threads.

Thoughts?

People who submit + moderators of the subforum. By curated I mean it will be news from leftist sources and/or about issues that concern leftists.

There won't be a lot of pressure on any one person to comb through a bunch of news sites and compile a lengthy list like NewsAnon does, instead people can submit one or two news they've read that day and they think they're worth sharing. I believe this would also give the news more variety. Also, if it is only one or few stories people submit, presumably they will have read the stories and will be able to give their opinion on it in a discussion post, rather than there just being links to news stories and people responding to the headlines.
