It's my first time finding a page that has lots of sources cited unreliable and I thought they should be removed but since they are cited instead of just removed I wasn't sure if it had to be discussed at a talk page first or could those sources just be removed. If someone could either tell me what the proper step is to correcting that page or look into that page themselves I would appreciate it. Human interest reporting is generally not as reliable as news reportingand may not be subject to the same rigorous standards of fact-checking and accuracy see junk food news.
There is a request for comment on whether certain sources "articles by any media group that [ Some editors think that if Activism X's website says blahblahblah about Person Y, then it is okay to put Activism-X's blahblahblah claim on Person-Y's Wikipedia article. Their assertion is that Act-X is talking about themselves.
I read the policy as meaning that an editor must instead provide a secondary source that verifies the claim by Activism-X about Person-Y, because Act-X's website is a self-published, non-reliable source.
Especially in the case where Person-Y may have been hired by Activism-X to appear in an advertisement for the benefit of Activism-X using celebrity branding whether or not Person-Y was paid money or donated their time and name. It would seem inappropriate to use Activism-X's website's claims as a citation in Person-Y's Wikipedia article. The purpose is self-promotion of Activism-X; there's never any further content on the page except for "Joe Blow supports our cause".
It's just name-droppingadvertising, and link spam. There is no secondary source saying it happened. It could actually be a hoax where Activism-X is just using a celebrity's name to promote their cause. There is no editorial oversight on many of these activist websites; they just don't qualify as reliable sources. Here is an example to illustrate the problem: an editor made a series of edits on where they inserted content about "Oscar's Law" activism into at least 5 celebrity articles.
Eight years later, three of the articles they inserted this into still have the edits 1 2 3and two have been corrected 4 5. Here are two sample diffs showing the insertions:  . They aren't the only editor adding this particular non-RS website as a citation.
There are currently 9 articles using oscarslaw. Presumably this advocate meant self-published sources guidelines, rather than various guidelines I have been operating from, including the Questionable sources guidelines and:. This isn't the only activism or activist-website that I'm having this trouble with you oughta see this one!
There seems to be a rampant problem with this and I'm just trying to correct the encyclopedia per policy. About one in every 20 corrective edits I make there is some sort of activism blowback to waste my time. I just want to make sure that I'm reading this policy correctly. Do others see it the same as I do, or is there another viewpoint I'm missing?
