Basically the Newsroom is different from General Discussion like:

In GD u can post any topic, which you feel, can ensue a healthy debate, Like the Israel-Palestine Conflict, Reservations, Euthanasia&nbsp; (Mercy Killing) etc.

Whereas The Newsroom is basically for posting Events as they happen, Breaking News, Something which you came across in the day’s newspaper or News Channel which needs to be shared with other people on a platform as unique as FOTN!

An example of such News posted here on FOTN include:

The Mumbai Bomb Blasts –Breaking News (One of the best followed up article on FOTN, updated almost in real time)

The Operation Sukoon- Lebanon Evacuations:


The Bush Groping Episode


And the one, which moved many hearts:

Saving Prince:
