As a rule, I generally ignore the comments sections on most news sites, mainly because of the point Andy brings up: anonymous commenting can lead to some pretty poor behavior. I do treat information on sites like Wikipedia differently, though. I studied journalism and history in undergrad, so I just got into the habit early on of fact-checking and finding more than one source for everything. Wikipedia can be useful, but I always look closely at where, exactly, the information is coming from before I use it in my own work.
