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.
