WASHINGTON, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Matt J.  Lauer, partner of Qorvis Communications, LLC and president of Qorvis Geopolitical Solutions, highlighted emerging sourcing challenges for corporations, individuals and organizations when contributing to Wikipedia.

Lauer points out that by not allowing primary sources to contribute directly to the articles, the policy results in many articles on the site that are inaccurate or even blatantly false.

Lauer claims that by refusing to converse with primary sources, Wikipedia's policy violates the fundamental rules of reporting, of debate, and of discussion. Lauer stresses the importance of getting beyond the rumors of social media for Wikipedia to become a first-rate dependable reference site.
