Wikipedia founder 'shot by friend of Siegenthaler' | The Register

Andrew Orlowski apparently spent several hours on Wikipedia today trying to track down something to make Wikipedia look bad. Took him awhile, but he finally found something in the revision log: vandalism claiming that the Wikipedia founder was murdered by a friend. Like all incredibly bad journalists, he cropped out of the revert time, so even though the vandalism was corrected within minutes, he decided to "only" take a screenshot of the edits, rather than the edit times.

Ahh, quality journalism from The Register strikes again. Tell me why I shouldn't trust Wikipedia more than those guys, again?
