The blind leading the hopeful, but unknowledgeable.
Wikinews has the NewsFeed extension, which builds on DPL. If you want an RSS or atom feed of Politics and conflicts, even broken down to a country level, it's trivial.
Maybe, just maybe, spreading Wikinews would gain traction if you asked existing Wikinewsies what has been tried and didn't work. But, by all means, continue writing your own specifications for a round friction-minimising device.
Are you sure that Wikinews has the NewsFeed extension?
And please, avoid personal attacks. Thank you
