I have to admit that I got turned off of TWaM in the first few minutes, when it shows the narrator doing research in Wikipedia and citing a claim that has [citation needed] right beside it onscreen.

Sure, that claim turns out to be accurate and backed up by a Washington Post article, among others, but it makes me question their journalistic integrity, and no documentary should make the viewer question the filmmakers' integrity.


Point taken. However, she is a researcher who went out and provided the needed citation. She actually used wikipedia the way it should be used: as a source of leads for further research.

And of course her conclusions are supported by masses of other sources, such as the ones the AP just dug up (see previous post).
