Only the English Wikipedia, and while en.wp is our most successful project
so far, there are other successful Wikipedias that were formed only through
community efforts with no paid editors.

The elephant in the room in all this is that
Wikinews lacks the critical
mass of editors to overcome these issues.
Producing a functional daily news outlet (website) requires a substantial
full time staff... of course so does an encyclopaedia, but an
doesn't have a weekly time limit on story
completion... so we can adopt a
more leisurely model.
Actually, wikipedia did have a paid full-time editor at bootup. Perhaps
wikinews needs something similar, and never really booted properly, due
to lack of it?
