Articles must be published within the last two weeks (decreased from one month)
Old content is often misleading because the political landscape changes rapidly. We therefore require all submissions in /r/politics to be published within the last two weeks. For example, if the date is January 29 and the article submitted was written before January 15, then the submission is out of date.
No Copy-Pasted Articles Rule
Submissions which are entirely a copy-paste of the original reporting, or that add one paragraph or less with a “read more at” link to the original content, are not permitted. Articles or videos that add another take on a subject, or include different verbiage or context, are otherwise allowed.
