The structure of the project allows anyone with an Internet connection to alter its content.

Reliability of Wikipedia
Librarians' viewsIn a 2004 interview with The Guardian, self-described information specialist and Internet consultant Philip Bradley said that he would not use Wikipedia and was "not aware of a single librarian who would. The main problem is the lack of authority. With printed publications, the publishers have to ensure that their data are reliable, as their livelihood depends on it. But with something like this, all that goes out the window."
Academics have also criticized Wikipedia for its perceived failure as a reliable source, and because Wikipedia editors may have no expertise, competence or credentials in the topic. Adrian Riskin, a mathematician in Whittier College commented that while highly technical articles may be written by mathematicians for mathematicians, the more general maths topics, such as the article on polynomials are written in a very amateurish fashion with a number of obvious mistakes.
Because Wikipedia can not be considered a reliable source, the use of Wikipedia is not accepted in many schools and universities in writing a formal paper, and some educational institutions have banned it as a primary source while others have limited its use to only a pointer to external sources.
Susceptibility to biasIndividual bias and the WikiScanner toolMain article:
In August 2007, WikiScanner, a tool developed by Virgil Griffith of the California Institute of Technology, was released to match anonymous IP edits in the encyclopedia with an extensive database of addresses. News stories appeared about IP addresses from various organizations such as the Central Intelligence Agency, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Diebold, Inc. and the (conservative led) Australian government being used to make edits to Wikipedia articles, sometimes of an opinionated or questionable nature

David Horowitz is a Red Diaper Baby. He may have been your leader back during the 60's and 70's since he was one of the top leaders of the Groucho Marxist aka Students for a Democratic Society, aka "new Left," In 1972 they came under the Democrat tent hiding behind the liberal label and when the dirtied that label they hide behind the progressive label today.
As long as Horowitz and his group 'says' it, it must be true! *shaking head*
