Does anyone worry that if newspapers make a habit of doing that, their
readers will look at Wikipedia as being as authoritative as the
newspaper and not bother to check into the article's accuracy? After
all, if the paper considers it authoritative enough to link to, it
must be so, right?
Virginia's dad once said that if you see it in the Sun it
must be true.
That led to one of the most famous newspaper editorials ever.
In many respects we probably *are* more authoritative than the
newspapers. Sheer modesty prevents us from admitting it.
