Defamation Leads to Inflamed Murder of Wikipedia Founder

The Examiner is reporting:

Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, has been murdered. We have reported on how Wikipedia is a good source of information, but does have flaws. Interestingly what was widely reported, a defamation of John Seigenthaler (DL's report), is now possibly being considered as the motive of the murder.

The Examiner says:

"'At 18:54 EST on December 12, John Seigenthaler's wife, who was infuriated at Wikipedia regarding the recent scandal regarding his role in the Kennedy Assassination, came into the house, where Jim was having dinner. Wearing a mask, he [sic] shot him three times in the head and ran," reported the online reference source."

If this is the case, it speaks to all about the dangers of defamation.

And be aware all you read on the internet you should approach with skepticism, Wales was really not shot.

Did you read the article? Here's a hint. There's a reason "death" and "shooting" are put in quotes. It isn't real.

You guys are really dense, no offense.

Yes, Bob knows it's a joke, but it's fun to draw in the nuts to make anonymous comments! Otherwise your anonymous comment would not have been published.

Wow anonymous, you are really dense, no offense.

This is why as I was reading I was going to verify after....exactly why. I find that I am lied to a lot by different media sources....though not always intentionally-the people who are wrong are often the people whom I find have stolen their work from someone else (that someone may have thought they were reporting facts).
