NationStates Flash News - IC

Postby Lile Ulie Islands » Thu Jun 16, 2022 2:56 pm

I got this idea from The South Pacific online forum. They have a whole thread named "IC Flash News" and I thought I would be fun to have something like that on NS Forums.

Flash news is basically where you post a headline of a news article that talks about ongoing news in your nation. It is supposed to be around 1-3 sentences, and the headline is from a recent news story.

My nation is the Lile Ulie Islands and recently a bill regarding Marijuana that reached the Senate in Congress failed. Here is an example of a Flash News post using the idea provided in the previous statement:

"Bill to de-legalize Marijuana failed in Congress earlier today. President Troy Cayetano called it a "blatant invasion of everyday civil rights" and "inhumane."

You can write for Flash News headline in any way, it could be in first-person, second, or third! If you are going to put the headline in another language (besides English), please provide an English translation on the same post.

Anyone can post here. Your region or anything doesn't matter. This is an open forum thread!

Have fun! I would love to see your headlines!

I'll do another one:

"Incumbent president and liberal Troy Cayetano enters runoff for re-election against self-described Democratic Socialist and Kailua City Councilor Ariana Kahele."

Spree of mass-shootings following end of Armenian occupation. Questions raised over wether or not AZNUP’s deescalation policy is effective after the deaths of over 8,000 people in the last week to these attacks.
Diplomacy: Tensions decrease between KTO and GCN. AZNUP puts foward ZN hold negiotations | politics: Protests in many states have quite following strong AZNUP response | economy: New Zeeland stock exchange keeps falling now by 42.3% as AZNUP looks to try and fix multiple economic issues. Debt continues to rise.

Spibean troops in Morocco are reportedly throwing parties in military bases with Moroccan infantry. While this would seem like poor discipline, this has resulted in strong bonding between Spibean and Moroccan troops. Hopefully unrelated, more Spibeans are joining the armed forces.
