Wikipedia: Unreliable or Helpful?


Lily Pham, MS Reporter

Wikipedia is usually a trusted site when it comes to many things. The thing is that anyone can edit Wikipedia and put up something called false information. Most people know what incorrect information is, but sometimes it is hard to tell if something is true or false information. When it comes to Wikipedia, people tend to trust it because it is almost like a research website. Sometimes when people edit the site, people try to enter false information blended so well that they can’t tell if it’s fake. Sometimes people edit it as a joke, and it is obviously fake. To conclude, Wikipedia isn’t the most reliable source. So, use a different source or double-check the information written.
