Moderators have discretion to remove submissions, comments or users that violate these rules.
Don’t post news that does not pertain to the United States or its territories. (Consider the subreddit title: ”USANews.)
Don’t use a title that does not concisely summarize the submission. (People should be able to know what it is about without clicking on the submission.) Stick to the published title as much as possible. DO NOT USE ALL CAPITAL LETTERS IN THE TITLE (even if that's the way it appears as published). Avoid “clickbait”ish titles. Ask what you want in a comment, not in the submission.
Don’t editorialize titles
Don’t post highly partisan political news
Don’t post petitions or calls for action
Don’t post spammy, unoriginal content
DO NOT SOLICIT DONATIONS FOR ANY CAUSE
Don’t post archived articles; use the original source
Don’t post articles that are not true, even if it is “satire”
Don’t post unnecessarily rude, antagonistic, or off-topic comments
Don’t use unnecessary, gratuitous profanity
Don’t say that you can't read something because of a 'paywall'. There is such a thing as a library, or a newsstand, or even a subscription. (Handy Helpful Hint: you can often get around the paywall by Googling the title.)
Don’t complain about a news source. (Comments about submission content are fine. Comments like "NY Times: LOL" will be removed.)
NO DIRECT SUBMISSIONS THAT LINK TO IMAGE OR VIDEO SITES (Imgur, Tinypic, YouTube, etc.). -- Post an article, and submit the image or video as a comment.
