|Welcome to In The News. Please read the guidelines. Admin instructions are here.|
This page provides a forum for editors to suggest items for inclusion in Template:In the news (ITN), a protected Main Page template, as well as the forum for discussion of candidates. This is not the page to report errors in the ITN section on the Main Page—please go to the appropriate section at WP:ERRORS.
This candidates page is integrated with the daily pages of Portal:Current events. Under each daily section header below is the transcluded Portal:Current events items for that day (with a light green header). Each day's portal page is followed by a subsection for suggestions and discussion.
How to nominate an item
In order to suggest a candidate:
There are criteria which guide the decision on whether or not to put a particular item on In the news, based largely on the extensiveness of the updated content and the perceived significance of the recent developments. These are listed at WP:ITN.
Submissions that do not follow the guidelines at Wikipedia:In the news will not be placed onto the live template.

Nominator's comments: After about 2 years of investigations and much anticipation along the way, Attorney General William Barr/Department of Justice has released the Special Counsel's final report to the public. Aviartm (talk) 18:08, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Activity on the article has slowed down, with little new material added since 15 April. The floods are no longer in the news in the UK at least. (The last BBC website coverage seems to be 6 April.) Espresso Addict (talk) 06:17, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Helium hydride is believed to be the very first molecule to have formed in the universe, ~100,000 years after the Big Bang. – PhilipTerryGraham (talk · articles · reviews) 01:49, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: She died on 7 April but it was not announced until yesterday (17th). One citation needed on the article that should be easy for someone on a desktop to verify or remove. Awkward42 (talk) [the alternate account of Thryduulf (talk)] 08:09, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
For deaths where the cause of death itself is a major story (such as the unexpected death of prominent figures by murder, suicide, or major accident) or where the events surrounding the death merit additional explanation (such as ongoing investigations, major stories about memorial services or international reactions, etc.) a blurb may be merited to explain the death's relevance. In general, if a person's death is only notable for what they did while alive, it belongs as an RD link. If the person's death itself is newsworthy for either the manner of death or the newsworthy reaction to it, it may merit a blurb." --- Coffeeandcrumbs 08:40, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: One of the best-known classical pianists fron Austria right after World War II, and playing in concert in 2018! - Sad, also the state of the article when I found it, and still far from good, - there should be more on repertoire and recordings. Help? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 13:16, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: ITNR race. Coverage largely overshadowed yesterday by the Cathedral fire. Article needs some work. Women's winner has an article, so I've linked her, though Men's winner does not yet have an article. Would be good if we can get the article up to scratch. I may have time to help if not too busy later. EDIT: Men's winner now has article, so I've linked that here too. Kenmelken (talk) 14:07, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Some important things are ongoing in the Libyan Civil War and is getting international coverage. The elections are due and two sides are fighting for the capital city Tripoli. About 120 deaths and 560+ injured reported so far. About 13,500 people are displaced. It should be in the ongoing section. If someone else chooses a blurb for it, I am OK with it. I can not point specific blurb. Article is regularly updated and B-class. Nizil (talk) 07:25, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Nominator's comments: Arguably the largest golf story in at least a decade, Tiger Woods wins his first major in eleven years. Articles need updating, but are ITN/R. Stormy clouds (talk) 18:37, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
Nominators often include links to external websites and other references in discussions on this page. It is usually best to provide such links using the inline URL syntax
[http://example.com] rather than using
<ref></ref> tags, because that keeps all the relevant information in the same place as the nomination without having to jump to this section, and facilitates the archiving process.
For the times when
<ref></ref> tags are being used, here are their contents:
