WIKIPEDIA BANS DAILY MAIL AS NEWS SOURCE DUE TO UN­RE­LI­A­BIL­ITY AND FAB­RI­CA­TION

MORE LIKE DAILY FAIL… UGH.

TechLife Australia - - HOTSPOT -

In a fairly unique move, Wikipedia edi­tors have voted to place a blan­ket ban on us­ing the “gen­er­ally un­re­li­able” Daily Mail as a source for their ar­ti­cles, cit­ing the news­pa­per’s “poor fact check­ing, sen­sa­tion­al­ism and flat-out fab­ri­ca­tion”. This is the first in­stance of a ban on an en­tire pub­li­ca­tion, as the de­ci­sion to use a par­tic­u­lar source was typ­i­cally left to the ar­ti­cle-ed­i­tor’s dis­cre­tion and com­mon sense.
