Errors with In the news[edit]

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to suggest/report this, so I apologize if it's not. That said, the statement "After weeks of protests over electoral fraud, Bolivian president Evo Morales and other high-ranking politicians are forced to resign, and opposition senator Jeanine Áñez becomes interim president." is misleading and a violation of NPOV. It needs to be rewritten to say "alleged electoral fraud". Thanks. Iamextremelygayokay (talk) 03:01, 21 November 2019 (UTC)

Today's OTD[edit]

  • Battle of Porto Bello - the infobox gives the date of this action as 22 November, and the text seems to imply that the capture of Portobello itself didn't take place until the day after 20 November. So this is all a little unclear (to me, at least). The Rambling Man (Staying alive since 2005!) 10:03, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
    The Infobox date must be in error, the text gives a date of 20 November and has a print citation which I cannot check. This and This indicate the battle did indeed begin the evening of the 20 November, extended into the 21 of November, and with the surrender occurring on the 22 November. While the bulk of the action did indeed occur on the 21, this could easily be one of those things that it depends on perspective of when the battle begins. Given the multiple interpretations of these things, I'm OK with the 20th. I'll be changing the infobox presently to match. --Jayron32 14:32, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
    This book has the text of the Instrument of Surrender on 22 November, and the order of battle, but does not date the battle itself nor give details on it. --Jayron32 14:35, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
    This source says that Vernon's fleet arrived in the evening of 20 November and opened fire at dawn of 21 November. I suppose it depends on whether or not you time the start of the battle from when Vernon arrived to fight it, or when he fired his first guns. --Jayron32 14:37, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
    You know what, I'm going to tweak the blurb to make it clearer. --Jayron32 14:38, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
    Just needs the tense to be fixed. The Rambling Man (Staying alive since 2005!) 14:40, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
    (edit conflict) I've re-written the blurb to be more accurate. The fleet arrived on the 20th, the capture occurred on the 21st and the surrender was signed on the 22nd. Please check my changes to see if they work for you. --Jayron32 14:41, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

  • (Fred Rogers) No need to cap "subcommittee" in the caption. I would also prefer "U.S. Senate...". Jmar67 (talk) 00:20, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
    • @Coffeeandcrumbs: De-capped subcommittee, indifferent on U.S. vs US so changed to your preference, unless Coffeeandcrumbs prefers the other way. Kees08 (Talk) 16:20, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
      On the same hook: Rogers' should be "Rogers's" per MOS:POSS; a comma is also unnecessary before to counter calls. — RAVENPVFF · talk · 17:16, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
