I am definitely a bit worried at how easily wikipedia vandalism is re-reported as factual news by some outlets.
Wikipedia is not a reliable source folks. It’s a great resource, but in and of its own it is as useful as a class of 4th graders.
Not only was the hoax misspelled, the wikipedia editors didn’t even add the right date.
