Lazy Journalism Pet Peeve

Dear working and aspiring journalists,

When you use Wikipedia as your only backgrounder for a story, we can tell. At least click on one of the references in the article and include, say, one additional fact.

Any particularly blatent examples you would care to share?
it saddens me when our "big"local newspapers only source is wikipedia.

seriously. how accurate can something that can be globally edited be? i mean, relying on the masses themselves for self correction? i dunno man. the masses have proved to make some pretty stupid mistakes in the past...

i'm just rambling incoherently. nevermind me.
*goes back to staring at the ceiling*
