No matter how good Wikinews is, this "exclusive interview" with Jimmy Wales, the founder of the Wikimedia Foundation is the same kind of PR you get from the mainstream.

Jimbo says a lot of good things, but this is like having the Survivor rejectee on the CBS morning show the next day.... All cross-promotion-all-the-time is not what people need more of, but less.

Can we be honest in civic media and not make news out of promotions, please?
