If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
I'm one of the people that does not accept a source that is void of outside critical analysis (such as magazine articles). I'm sure my discernment of sources is superior to yours, given my education dwarfs yours. One shouldn't get personal about things they're ignorant regarding.
It all falls into place. You're one of those people that thinks he can critically analyze another's work all by himself. You know, one of those people that doesn't understand the purpose of outside review, let alone peer review. You think you know it all and you don't need reviews of material to determine accuracy. And guess what? That's stupid.

I subscribe to a few magazines whose content is only available online if you are a subscriber (New York Review of Books, for example). They are reputable magazines, but I can't always link to an article. In those cases, I try to be very complete about the source.
I'd prefer a well-edited fact-checked magazine article (or book) to a non-edited blog post, in many cases (depends, of course, on the blog)
However, I'm not sure I saw a lot of critiques of it, either confirming or disputing it. Maybe I just missed them.
Does no one else in this tread understand the importance of outside reviews and that magazine articles have none?
Wtf, did anyone in this thread go to college?
Just because something is printed or linked to a website doesn't make it automatically valid, it does depend on the validity and credibility of the source. For instance- Drudge Report, which I find has some interesting News stories that don't get covered by the mainstream press, also uses a source that I thought was legit (Infowars) and have been called out on it several times. And it's no better than a grocery store tabloid. I assumed coming from his site, which is wildly popular, that it had to be good. For the most part I believe a majority of non-opinion or fact based websites that provide information attempt to be accurate.
I've heard Wiki get trounced here quite a bit and haven't seen it to be a bad source overall.
