Although the online encyclopedia Wikipedia recently added its 1 millionth English-language article, controversy over the value of its content continues. [FOOTNOTE 1] Concerns arise because Wikipedia has no single editor, and anyone (or virtually anyone) can add a new entry or edit an existing one.

Sometimes an entry can be overtly suspect, such as the recent change to the bio for a congressman that included the statement “he likes to beat his wife and children.” [FOOTNOTE 2]
