Citation Needed

This week Wikipedia announced it's no longer accepting articles or links from the Daily Mail, because its stories and reporting are "too unreliable."

Wikipedia of course is a popular online encyclopedia that's editable by scholars and casual readers alike. The Daily Mail is a British daily tabloid newspaper that's been published in London since 1896.
In a statement released by Wikipedia, they stated that the Daily Mail was "generally unreliable, and their use is to be generally prohibited, especially when other, more reliable sources exist." They went on to say that the tabloid has "a reputation for poor fact checking, sensationalism and flat-out fabrication."

You know, I'm pretty sure Spock once said something like this to an android to make its head explode.
