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.
