    Wikipedia gets its information from web browsers who submit the information to the website. it can be manipulated. Steven Colbert had an few episodes on his show where he wanted to prove that if enough people wrote slander and rumors about him on wikipedia that it would eventually be a part of the page...and it worked. Do not trust wikipedia for correct information. It chooses what will be displayed by popularity of the submission of information about a subject.

    Try an encyclopedia or a library. =]
