Wikipedia is a wonderful thing, but its NPOV policy isn't necessarily the "key to their system." My own wiki, SourceWatch (http://www.sourcewatch.org), follows a somewhat different policy. Instead of a "neutral point of view," we aspire to "fairness and accuracy." Of course we don't always achieve this fully (just as Wikipedia doesn't always achieve neutrality). Moreover, we are a more specialized wiki with a smaller contributor base, which means that Wikipedia generally beats us on quantity and quality (although we frequently beat Wikipedia with respect to detail and depth in a number of articles specific to our area of specialization). Similarly, the dKosopedia (http://www.dkosopedia.com ) has achieved some interesting results in its own area of specialization.

I've written a blog entry discussing some of the issues regarding NPOV and newsgathering, at the the following URL:

Even taking a purely traditional approach, mothers need education more than do fathers, because a child's life, his education, begins at his mother's breast.
