You can't totally trust any source of information. Whenever the
information is about a subject you are really familiar with, you notice
common errors or controversial views.

It is only the topics you know little about that are presented
accurately and authoritatively.

The definition of an expert is "somebody who disagrees strongly with
another expert".
