Citing its ‘reputation for poor fact checking and sensationalism’, Wikipedia has banned the Daily Mail as a reference for articles in the online encyclopaedia. The Daily Mail has attacked this decision, as reported in the UK Huffington post article Daily Mail Hits Back At Wikipedia After It Bans Tabloid As Source, Calling It Unreliable. Forbes online commented on the implications of the ban, in What Wikipedia’s Daily Mail ‘Ban’ Tells Us About The Future Of Online Censorship. Katherine Maher of Wikipedia explained the decision in an interview in the Guardian ‘We always look for reliability’: why Wikipedia’s editors cut out the Daily Mail.
