Today, on 18 January 2012, Wikipedia and other sites have closed down and will blackout the internet for one day. They want to protest against a bill currently being considered by the US Congress: the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
I realise that without Wikipedia, many students, researchers and journalists will despair.
If you have urgent fact-checking questions, you can therefore post them here and I or some of my readers will answer them. This service is not offered in an effort to circumvent the blackout, but I am simply fed up with how many mistakes seep into newspapers or TV news every day already and I don’t want these mistakes to multiply today.
