The answer to your question , On how you can trust Wikipedia or another online resource , is that fact Generally, you can say you can trust something if it is repeated in another source you trust. (e.g. the New York Times, BBC news). A measure of trustworthyness of sources like the New York Times or BBC news is their track record; they are known for fact-checking their entries. At times they can still miss the boat and report something in error. The more trusted sources that report something independently off eachother, the more trust you can place in it.
