Extra Credit Wikipedia

I believe Wikipedia is biased. I am not a fan of the idea that virtually anyone could go into an article and edit it. There have been many occasions on Wikipedia where people lied and placed myths on wiki pages. Also, celebrities are subject to lies and false details about their lives over wiki. I see why and understand why Wikipedia is not a valid source for educational papers and homework assignments. I am NOT a fan of Wikipedia, simply because of our assignment.

  1. I completely agree. I never before understood why instructors did not consider wikipedia to be a credible source until we started using it in this class. I do not like the fact that anyone inlcuding myself ( who is no expert on any particular topic outside of myself) can put forth information that countless others rely on.
