Quote from previous email on mailing list: "...the need for a non-public space for Wikinews to develop stories..."

Isn't this going completely against the idea of a wiki? Should we really stop people from seeing the development process for the majority of our users. To me this just seems like a way to allow us to censor articles without anyone noticing.

I am concerned that Wikimedia is going to start censoring all our articles. This sort of thing, along with Wikinews:WMF Reports is what is going to stop us being unbiased.
