Yes, that constitutes the "news" element.
I would have thought "thoughts" would be implicitly implied in such threads, but as you evidently struggle with this concept I shall edit it for your benefit.
Seriously - what is the point? What is the point of just making OPs that are direct cut & pastes and links? Just starting threads fishing for opinions - you don't even have your own in there.
Why do people do it?
