Shockingly pathetic. Even I'm better than that! Reuters is particularly embarassing. And as for the BBC, they only employed him for over two decades, didn't they? Christ.

This is the trouble with Wikipedia. The people who use it don't realize that it's only as good as its own sources. If you don't check the sources (all of them) to make sure something's not mistyped, taken out of context, or wrong completely, then Wikipedia is no more helpful than phoning up 200 random residents of Anytown, Earth and compiling everything they think they know on a given subject.
It's a tremendously helpful resource when used properly. Which it never, ever, under any circumstance, is.

The best thing about researching something on wikipedia is that even if it's bullshit it often sounds like something that isn't so you get away with it. Much easier to copy and paste bollocks that someone else has put on wikipedia rather than having to come up with your own.
