Wikipedia is one of the biggest Charlie Foxtrots on the Internet.

On articles that are not controversial, not political, or fairly simple, it's usually fairly accurate.  However, anything beyond that is never, ever to be trusted.  There is a massive liberal bias on Wikipedia so anything which politics touches be it elections, elected officials, homosexuals, global warming, etc. will always be presented with a major liberal bias.

Any member who dares to go against this is banned because the rules are written to favor the admins and other special members, the vast majority of which are liberals.

Edit: Typo fix.

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton

Like Atomic Cow, I use Wikipedia for fast immediate results that pertain something simple like birth, death, party, or things that don't need more verification. For something more complex, the digging begins. Wikipedia has another plus and that is, it can lead you to other sites.

Wiki isn't always wrong, but as often as not, it is slanted. Even back in 2003, we were not permitted to use Wiki as a source at the local college.
