Lets be honest.

In all honesty, we all use Google as our primary source of dragging out information on something that interests us. The first couple of results always seem to have wikipedia. It works, and usually leads in the direction that we want. There isn’t anything wrong with doing this. If something written in one of the articles seems to be wrong, it can always be validated to be true or false through further digging. Of course there are biases. It’s really hard to find unbiased or neutral biases in almost anything where someone has an opinion on it. It’s human nature to have biases and have opinions. But to make out lives easier in an academic role, we use validated sources. The authors are usually experts in their field and try to have minimal biases.
