It would only be scary in a situation where:
1. information is added to a Wikipedia article without a source,
2. same information is reported in a newspaper which used Wikipedia as
a (possibly uncredited) source.
3. Wikipedia article is "updated" to cite the newspaper as a source.

In other cases, ones where we can conclusively tell whether the
chicken or the egg crossed the street first, it's nothing to worry
