[Citation Needed] is a blog on tumblr run by Conor Lastowka and Josh Fruhlinger dedicated to hilariously bad Wikipedia writing. Excerpts may be chosen because of poor grammar/spelling, triviality or irrelevance to the article, or just because they seem strange. While in the beginning excerpts were presented without commentary, Conor and Josh soon began adding snarky commentary to each entry using the tags at the end.


The blog also has a podcast hosted by Conor, where entries are expanded upon and turned into skits. There is also a book featuring various entries from the blog with added comments.

Not to be confused with the Show Within a Show [citation needed] in Echo Chamber, nor the British YouTube Panel Show of the same name.
