Latest Breaking News (Forum): About This Forum

Post the latest news from reputable mainstream news websites and blogs. Important news of national interest only. No analysis or opinion pieces. No duplicates. News stories must have been published within the last 12 hours. Use the published title of the story as the title of the discussion thread.

Forum hosts are regular DU members who meet certain eligibility requirements. Any DU member who meets these requirements may volunteer to serve as a forum Host. If no Hosts are assigned to a particular forum, the DU Administrators serve as Hosts. Forum Hosts have one responsibility: They lock threads which they believe violate the forum's Statement of Purpose.

The Latest Breaking News forum has a maximum quota of 20 Hosts. Hosts cannot serve for more than 90 consecutive days. Current Hosts of this forum:
