    Default Colbert Screws With Wikipedia

    I hate Wikipedia, it's completely worthless and largely inaccurate. So, Monday Colbert does a bit he called Wikireality and then urged them to log on and post about the exploding elephant population in Africa.

    People did:

    I've never actually looked at wikepedia before, but I heard a report that it only has on average 1 more error per entry then encyclepedia britanica. Britanica was between 2-3 errors per entery and wikepedia was 3-4 if I remember correctly. Don't know why I bother to mention that. Your post just reminded me of it.

    You mean to tell me that everything I read on the internet isn't true?
    A little more volume in the headphones please.
