The linked to article makes a big deal of the fact Shankbone wrote the Wikipedia article saying Santa isb't real. Also it mentions Wikipidia 25 times and Wikinews once, and even then calls it a section of Wikipedia and says it employs 25 reporters, not that it has 25 accredited reporters (who are volunteers), which would be corret. It is said that Wikinews is part of Wikipedia, it is not, it is seperate. I think the author of this article does not understand Wikinews.
