There's no specific rules about them, as far as I know. When an
article is too journalistic in style, it gets edited to a more
acceptable one in time, or it gets nominated for deletion. However,
that has nothing to do with being about a recent event. If someone
does the same with an event from 1930s, it will be treated the same
