Andrew, a newssource is not "reasonably

the Register is not a reliable source after not just this awful mess of an
article, but several others on varied topics.
If that's going to be our criterion, then we might as well get rid of
CNN, ABC, the BBC, _Liberation_, and dozens of other sources. All have
a strong tendency to sensationalize minor stories and even print patent
falsehoods, especially in certain areas.
It seems The Register is being singled out here because they printed an
article about Wikipedia that we don't like, which seems silly.
