“The Seigenthaler incident” – in May 2005 a hoax article was posted in Wikipedia about John Seigenthaler, a well-known writer and journalist which suggested that Seigenthaler(pic 1)may have had a role in the assassinations of both John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy(pic 2). The post was not discovered and corrected until more than four months later. The incident raised questions about the reliability of Wikipedia and other online sites that lack the accountability of traditional news sites. After the incident, Jimmy (pic 3)Wales stated that Wikipedia had barred unregistered users from creating new articles and taken other unspecified steps to prevent a recurrence.
