Wiki has always been a little fishy.

I am glad you finally see the light regarding wiki.

It is a great source for POP information only. And then ONLY if there are credible footnotes. They have editors that are suppose to monitor edits and content but they would have to have 1,000 editors and required submitted, vetted changes for it to actually become a legitimate reference resource.

There are many here that don't like the truth, but Jayhawk is right. Both sides edit the hell out of Wiki, and it shows up time and time again.
Mcbear pointed out FOX news, but there are those on the left that have done this as well. It's a shame really.

No, the DNC change was this:

I think there was a problem with the word "legally".

For the record I also pointed out NYT.

I don't like when anyone does it. I would say it is "just Wiki" and blow it off but too many people use it as a resource and it would be nice if it had academic integrity.

Didn't somebody here just post that wording in one of their posts?
I would be shocked, shocked I tell you, if anybody here worked for the DNC.
