Daily Mail Can No Longer Be Used as a Source on Wikipedia

"Generally unreliable," according to a vote by Wikipedia editors

In early January, Wikipedia user Hillbillyholiday put in a request for comment on Wikipedia regarding British tabloid the Daily Mail. “Should we prohibit the use of The Daily Mail as a source?” wrote Hillbillyholiday. “I envisage something just short of blacklisting, whereby its introduction to an article could be accepted only upon there being a demonstrable need to use it instead of other sources.” A lengthy, monthlong discussion followed, at the end of which time Wikipedia’s editors voted, and a decision was reached: Daily Mail will no longer be used as a source.
