Wikipedia has some serious problems. Wikipedia articles/entries that are about History or Politics are often unreliable, extremely biased, and incredibly one sided. There are many examples of Wikipedia articles totally contradicting each other and presenting the contradictions as fact. There also many examples of Wikipedia articles stating totally FALSE information with weak citations and evidence that readers think is factual.

Wikipedia can be edited by anyone, content can be changed by anyone for any reason, so each article will most likely be written by someone who has a passion for the topic and therefore a bias for or against it. Wikipedia administrators are shadowy figures that can have very strong biases, and they control what you see and read on Wikipedia, effectively altering public opinion to fit their narrative and beliefs. Take what you read on Wikipedia with a huge grain of salt.
You read that on Wikipedia? Ha! No wonder it's not true.

A place filled with administrator/moderator troll nazis who do not understand that reverting inaccurate facts does not constitute edit warring, a poorly managed "encyclopedia" filled with trolls that are mostly moderators and administrators
Wikipedia used to be chill, until people became politically correct pansies

The most biased and inaccurate source of information on Planet Earth. They claim that anyone can edit and contribute but this is not true. Any attempt to add or edit content is removed within 5 minutes by registered douchebag editors with no lives who sit around 24 hours a day, just waiting to delete whatever you might add.
I tried to correct Wikipedia's entry on the Earth by saying that it's round but someone reverted back to say that the Earth is square.

A Nazi-infected corner of the web. Most incidences involve blocking without reason, administrator abuse, and flame wars.
I was editing Wikipedia and this guy blocked me for no reason.

A site that sounds and looks good at a first glance. While Wikipedia can be a useful resource for quick research, the community is probably the worst on the net, and actually trying to edit an article will lead to pointless debates about "POV" and "assuming good faith" that make it not even worth it.

Wikipedia is a site:

Where an 18 year old with Asperger's who spends 18 hours a day editing has the same say as a Harvard professor.

Where you'll find pictures of mutilated penises and nude decapitated women galore, but if you create an account with "poop" or "sex" as part of your screenname, you'll be banned for having an "offensive username".

Where 12 year old kids are given admin access, so if a guy with a doctorate in quantum mechanics happens to piss of some 12 year old Pokemon fan with admin powers, he just might get the banhammer.

Where articles on obscure Pokemon characters, individual Family Guy episodes, and Japanese porn cartoons get featured on the homepage, and are more detailed and accurate in content than articles on American history.

Where you can listen to audio articles on "death erection" and "cumshot", but not "World War II" or "Abraham Lincoln".
Wikipedia is like a sausage, you may like the taste of it but you don't necessarily want to see how it's made.
