So if you have a newswire module defined, then edit it again, tick the promoted only option. Then re-cache -ticking the box to make it live. At this point, editors can now promote or demote a story. You actually only need to give it one vote to appear in the newly defined promoted newswire. Demote takes away the vote. The threshold is set at one. It is currently hardcoded in the newswiredisplay.inc code. (See function setQueryOption around line 979)
