A cookie-cutter speech, is a generic speech that is not original, is generic, boring, lack of content (and sometimes of meaning) and the worst part it is not so convincing and motivational.
This generic speech usually does not cite any source but everyone known that this speech is not original.

Sometimes, a cookie-cutter speech is able to "freeze the time", converting a simple 5 minutes speech in a tedious whole hours speech.

A cookie-cutter speech is used when :
-A speaker need a rushed speech.
-The speaker does not care about the speech and just want the work done.
-The speaker does not have imagination and he want to try a "proved formula", usually copied from a Human Resource book.
-Is repetitive and tedious, most of the times used by the Head of a University speaking to the new students.
-Over abusing of a renowned speech.
Politician style:
-Vote for me and ____ (insert promise that everyone know that will be unfulfilled) is a cookie-cutter speech.
-I have a dream _____ (imitating Martin Luther King) is another is a cookie-cutter speech.

A beauty contest:
-What do you want for the future.
-I want world peace and feeding the starving African children is a clichéd is a cookie-cutter speech.

Unreliable Source is a common tag used by Wikipedia. Wikipedia is (or intended to be) a open source encyclopedia.

In theory, the tag "Unreliable source" is used when an article or part of a article cite or talk about some questionable content.

But, in a real world scenario, "Unreliable source" is used as a form to piss off contributors. Even by using logic, if a statement is correct but some editor consider to screw it, then it can claim that the statement is incorrect.
Writer-"The roses are red"
Editor -I put a unreliable source tag because the statement does not cite any source claiming it.
Writer-But i put not only a source but 3 sources.
Editor -Sorry about that but *im* still consider unreliable.
