Wikipedia editors have voted to ban the Daily Mail as a source for the website in all but exceptional circumstances after deeming the news group “generally unreliable”.

The move is highly unusual for the online encyclopaedia, which rarely puts in place a blanket ban on publications and which still allows links to sources such as Kremlin backed news organisation Russia Today, and Fox News, both of which have raised concern among editors.

The editors described the arguments for a ban as “centred on the Daily Mail’s reputation for poor fact checking, sensationalism and flat-out fabrication”.

They still allow Howard Zinn's fake history book as a source.

I'm starting to think your idiocy isn't an act.

If you think that book is factual, you are the idiot.

Which one? He wrote twenty.

How many history books have you written, Noldor?

The one most liberals slobber over: "A People's History of the United States"

How many history books have I written? Zero. And why should that matter?

It is an interesting counterpoint to more traditional books. Surely you can see there is more than one truth.

Anyway, when it comes to political events, you need to take Wikipedia with a grain of salt.

I witness many doubtful entries in Canadian history, and the "talk pages" are hilariously stupid.

I wouldn't mind so much if it was truthful. (I would still mind because it's a book that just cherry picks the worst parts of American history) But this book flat out fabricates stories, takes things out of context, skews the truth, etc. all for the sake of keeping with its theme of America is evil.

Flat out fabricates stories, huh?

You have proof of that?

Unlike the current history books in schools that tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help them McGraw-Hill

An unreliable and biased site(Wikipedia) banning what it deems an unreliable news source.

Shouldn't they ban CNN and the Huffington Post as well?

He claims violent crimes continue to increase in spite of the tough laws. The reality is violent crime has been cut in half since 1993.

Zinn's books are absurd accounts of real history. How are you not aware of that? Or do you feel insulting people makes you right?

Here is another.

“Unemployment grew in the Reagan years,” Zinn claims. Statistics show otherwise. Reagan inherited an unemployment rate of 7.5 percent in his first month in office. By January of 1989, the rate had declined to 5.4 percent

No need since you are not refuting it.

You know the Earth is a sphere. So there is no need for someone to prove to you it's a sphere. Understand?

I am still waiting for you to prove your claim that only Whites can commit a hate crime. You still haven't come up with a single fact to back your claim.
