Wikipedia Down

So Wikipedia take a day off in protest at piracy laws being implemented in USA. 

Journalists all over the place panic as they have no resource to check facts so it’s back to proper researching and phone calling sources.  Ah the good old days before the Internet became the ‘source’ for checking facts.

Wikipedia is great but it is not the answer to all questions even though the lazy journos do seem to rely on it totally.  It’s only one day without but maybe this one day will reawaken the journalist in most reporters who rely on Wikipedia.
