Poll on what is news?

On the old Agonist Bulletin Board, there was sort of an unwritten rule for a while that everyone went along with, because they wanted their news “straight up” and it went like this: For the News Board, use the headline from the source; any comments you have, put them after the article citation.

Take a look at this item in News Queue which was elevated to the Front Page and then answer after the jump.

  1. It is an important issue, one on which my preference has always been clear.  I think it is fine to have news and opinion both in the same posting.  BUT they must be clearly distinguishible.  

    I don’t think the cross-out trick violates this separation and so I am comfortable with the news placement.
