"People are increasingly sceptical about the information they get from the mainstream media, but they'll believe anything online. Once, when I was working at a men's magazine, a colleague was compiling a quiz about Muhammad Ali. As a test, I inserted a banal lie into Ali's Wikipedia biography (I said a species of rose, rosa ali, is named after him). Innocently my colleague incorporated the lie into his quiz. Ten years later, on Ali's frequently updated Wikipedia page, that lie is still there."

/Not: När det här publicerades i The Daily Telegraph för två dagar sedan, var det någon som redigerade Muhammad Alis Wikipedia-sida. Men det krävdes tio år och ett erkännande från förövaren för att så skulle ske!/
