Wikipedia is a site in which readers can edit material. It has recently been learned that individuals, organizations, and politicians often make changes that support or improve their image. Though Virgil Griffith has invented a scanner to check IP addresses, I still would not trust the Wikipedia site for information. The persons editing the site may make their changes anonymously. If I was looking for reliable, factual material, I would not look at the Wikipedia site.

  1. My position is that you should be wary of ALL sites. If there is reason to believe there might be a bias, check numerous sources. Also, sometimes absolute accuracy doesn't matter if you just want to get a sense of the historical context.
