Rule 1 should add a caveat to prevent subjectivity (maybe a requirement for >30 days to be submitted as a discussion post with the link in discussion box accompanied by an explanation of how it is relevant?)

Rule 2 should be user enforced.

Rule 3 should be user enforced

Which is why I suggested "user enforced" - make these rules "guidelines" - no mod subjectivity

Yah, Rule 2 especially seems ripe for abuse. Who is going to be the fact checker? What sources are deemed worthy of vetting said facts?

Rule 2 might be a judgement call in some cases, but if the submission alters the title, things like "JEW MEDIA SILENT!" are obvious editorialization. I think most people would be fine with some variant of "don't invent hysterical titles".

Rule 3 should be mod enforced. People may see an image post they like and upvote it without seeing what sub it is in. You run the risk of too many meme/shitposts taking over the sub.

Then make a "no memes" rule. By this rule, if Tienanmen Square were to happen today you would not be allowed to post the tank image to v/news "cuz no images".
