Wikipedia may have some issues of trustworthiness, but don’t think the newspapers that constantly “uncover” Wikipedia’s issues are spotless:
- Credibility in Question – Jayson Blair was a former New York Times reporter found guilty of plagiarizing and even making up entire stories.
- wiki-whatdia? – A Times editor advises reporters not to “check any information that goes into the newspaper.” Do we hear a confession? (Via)
- Reporter who plagiarized Wikipedia gets dismissed – A reporter from the Honolulu Star-Bulletin gets fired for plagiarizing Wikipedia articles.
