I am pretty sure that I have seen people on here that have discredited Wikipedia for the very same reason. Has anyone here actually edited Wikipedia? I have attempted to correct grammar and ended up with my own version of the page that nobody could see unless they specifically looked for it.

I think the only reason to cite a source you dislike is to attempt to discredit the information. I feel like people regularly reject what I tell them even if I cite the source. They may tell me to stop watching Fox News, but I never cite Fox. However, sometimes I see a Fox story and either find their source or look for someone credible that confirms or contradicts the statement.

Does Aerohead just share his vast knowledge with us or does he give us sources (that are not Wikipedia and Fox News)?
