Wikipedia is Bad

24 04 2012

Students should avoid using Wikipedia at all costs.  It is not a reliable source, nor it is acceptable at the college level.  The idea here is that students with access to college-level databases, periodicals, etc. can do much better than a source that has proven to be unreliable and tainted.

The video below describes the story of John Sangenthaler, a member of the Kennedy White House, who in 2005 was listed as an “accessory to JFK’s assassination” in his own Wikipedia entry.  When Sangenthaler challenged it, the user(s) responsible combated it by adding a Nazi logo to his entry.

The founder of Wikipedia is Jimmy Wales (pictured below).  He launched Wikipedia in 2001 and it has exploded to be one of the most visited websites on Earth with over 780 million unique entries.
