And before you pull a red herring, I am not pointing out Fox News in general. Most articles nowadays are poorly researched and they force you to speculate on what it actually means instead of presenting facts.
Well to correct you, Fox News is a lot more legitimate than most media outlets these days (and a heck of a lot better at sourcing things), which is a seperate topic:

Anyways, True_Avery in my experience academia is actually some of the worst people when it comes to not sourcing materials or sourcing materials they know are blatently false.



Back to topic, wikipedia used to have some credibility but like MSNBC, the Associated Press, and other media outlets they have lost credibility.
