I just was looking at

and saw that in one of the boxes on the page, the word
"superdelegates" was a hyperlink - imagine my surprise when I clicked
on it and it took me to the Wikipedia article.

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?
