May I ask why? Is it because "Wikipedia is untrustworthy"? Sorry to tell you, but every source is untrustworthy. Every source will differ from each other, and some are untrustworthy. Or is it because "anybody can edit on Wikipedia", rarely will there be incorrect information on Wikipedia, and people could notice the error and fix it. Also, you can check the references to see if the Wiki page and the sources are similar or not
