Thanks Brandon. FYI, Wikipedia is not a news source but an encyclopedia. 

 

Here is a link to a news source.

yes but it's updated round the clock, which is why it can be an excellent source for summaries of all the other news sources that are available online.

 

the greek word for encyclopedia literally translates "all-around education."

 

And the wikimedia foundation, which hosts the community's content, also runs Wikinews (but this hasn't had as much user interest /generated content as some of their other projects).  Which is probably why the founder of WP recently launched a crowdfunded project, not backed by the wikimedia foundation, called WikiTribune.com

As a policy statement, though, if you are posting about a news story, please link to the news story and not the Wiki entry.  

 

Plus, while Wiki is updated around the clock, it's updated by users such as you and I.  It's not often the most reliable.  Just look at the Wiki entry on Jehovah's Witnesses.  People with an axe to grind are always editing Wiki topics and manipulating the information.  

 

Wiki is a good source for facts and figures.  If you want to discuss an actual current news item, there are legitimate news sources out there to link to.
