Tabloid newspaper deemed unreliable.

In an unusual move, editors have voted to ban the Daily Mail as a source for the website, citing general unreliability.

The statement refers to the news group’s sensationalism, fabrication and poor fact-checking.

References to the Daily Mail will be flagged and editors asked to identify alternative sources while Wikipedia has asked volunteers to review, and clean up, thousands of existing references.
