I would argue that as in most situations in which this issue is  
brought forward, it is related to controversial articles, due  
diligence of editors is required to make an assessment of these sources.

I do not think that the issue is the number of sources that support  
this or that POV. Minority POVs are easy to spot in most situations.  
A good debate about these sources and their reputability is due, and  
consensus hopefully achieved by involved editors.

Simple math will *not" make an article to reflect NPOV.
