A day in the life of Danny D'Amours

Wikipedia infiltrated by intelligence agencies?

How much can you trust articles on wikipedia? For that matter, how much can you trust other sources of information?

This article (Wikipedia and the Intelligence Services – OhmyNews International) describes signs that suggest intelligence agencies may be placing mis-information on Wikipedia and it also has a bit of a historical perspective on previous mis-information seeding by the CIA and other intelligence agencies.

This just confirms the mantra – “Double check your sources!” and “Never blindly trust any information source.”. People must always examine information and information sources in a critical light. Even “trusted sources” must be questioned and examined in order to reveal any biased perspectives or twisting of information.

Remember : Statistics are no substitute for judgment. ~ Henry Clay
