Do you trust Wikipedia?

When I need to check or verify a piece of information, I like most people born after 1970, use the internet.  The first place I go to is Google.  Usually, the 1st listing in the organic search listing of sites is Wikipedia.  You might disagree with me, but I don’t trust Wikipedia.

I don’t know, there is something about getting information from a source that is dependent upon the accuracy of the public to update and maintain the integrity of the information that bothers me.  I have met many people who have found discrepancies on the site.  Since I don’t use the site very often, I don’t know of any discrepancies off the top of my head that I can point out.

So, I am curious if you find Wikipedia to be a trusted source of information.  Would love to hear your feedback.
