Just a thought...

There is this press release currently pending: 

I just realised there were no links to the other projects (it should). 
But aside from this... when a famous politician (for example) make a big 
speech, and get quoted everywhere for a really buzz sentence, could we 
somehow generate some attention for wikiquote and wikinews ? I do not 
think we could make a press release for this but...

Another example. Let us say there is a presidential election... thanks 
to the election, Wikimedia France collected a huge amount of pictures 
from all the candidates.

Now, let us say that immediately after the elections, Wikimedia France 
publishes a press release to announce that
1) we collected huge amounts of images during and immediately after the 
2) and that we have a fabulous set of information about the new president
