A Wikipedia Observation

You can learn a lot from Wikipedia.

The problem is you have to fact check it for mistakes, assumptions, etc.

Of course, you have to do the same for any non-fiction you read, because even the best scholars have bad days, poor editors, and hobby horses.

This is why newspaper editors and teachers instruct one to have multiple sources for one’s non-fiction writings.
