AND CHECK THE FOOTNOTES!


But reading more words takes effort....and brainpower.

Anything controversial and especially political will usually be biased one way or the other.

So will the footnotes.

Season accordingly...

La reply to: pravdaIseeker

I may have used Wiki a dozen or so times, I was always under the assumption it could not be trusted. I only used it to look up actors for the most part.

Hasn't it been said all along that Wikipedia was full of false info, and didn't Encyclopedia Britannica say that also?

I recall finding false info on Wikipedia but that was years ago, right after the classroom elephant thing. Anyone remember that?

It's easier just to get outraged.

Another bit along these lines is that traditional encyclopedias haven't been free of bias, either. Editing in those publications is of a higher standard, but the publications can't be claimed to be 100% neutral. All in all though, Britannica is probably the better resource to consult for serious topics that are not current events.

Cheers
