Wikipedia Called the Daily Mail 'Unreliable'

The topic of Daily Mail is not acceptable for any entry in Wikipedia, said the Wikipedia editorials known as online encyclopedia. Because of this, they say that the Daily Mail is highly unreliable. According to British Tabloid Daily Mail and the information published on its website generally cannot be trusted. UK-based press media ‘Independent’ told the news.

In a recent statement, Wikipedia's English language editor said, "They have a bad name for the information, weaknesses, over-excerpts and inadequate information."It is also said in the statement that 'this Tabloid is generally forbidden to be used as any reference.'

The Wikimedia Foundation, a non-profit organization run by the Wikipedia website, said in a statement about the voting in general readers on Daily Mail. The Guardian, according to the statement, said that Wikipedia's unpaid editors would like to use Daily Mail as a reference.


The statement further mentions, from now on, Daily Mail will no longer be referred to as the source of reliable information in English Wikipedia. In addition, as a reference, all the existing sources of Daily Mail have been removed and the Wikipedia's voluntary editor is urged to use the new reliable sources in the statement.

The ban is also against the US tabloid. According to Wikipedia's editorial guidelines, the US tabloid 'The National Inquirer' should never be used as a reference.

Wikipedia content is written and edited based on reliable and third-party information. However, Wikipedia has considerable reputation for the accuracy and accuracy of this information.

The guidelines are instructed to be careful in the use of information, especially the Chinese news agency Xinhua, North Korean Central News Agency and Iran Press TV. It is said in the guidelines that the news published in these media may be directed by specific groups and opinions. But they were not directly banned against them.

It has been argued against Wikipedia's decision that Daily Mail has historically served neutral and accurate news. Even though the Wikipedia stopped the Daily Mail using it as a reference, Wikipedia is still using other weak source website for references.
