> No, it has to *assert* the notability of its subject.  When clearing up CAT:CSD I see a lot of speedy taggings where the tagger simply figured "sure, there's an assertion of notability there, but I don't think it's good enough".  Wrong.

What would be an example of an article which asserts notability but
doesn't establish it?
