Cassie de PecolEdit

Cassie de Pecol is not the first woman to travel to every country on Earth. She rightfully earned those Guinness World Record titles but any additional claims are false. A German woman had a book published by a major German book publisher detailing her extensive travel to every country on earth before Cassie De Pecol even began her trip. This was covered by German press (see sources 4,5,6,7,8 below). Cassie's book was not published by any major or established publisher and cannot be taken as fact. Numerous American woman presented information and proof showing they had visited every country on earth. See sources 1, 2, 3. Additionally, De Pecol must have falsely told the New York Times she was the first woman to travel to every nation, after they published an article with that claim, they issued a correction. See the final source (8). 1- View from the Wing - Fake News: Cassie de Pecol Not Actually First Woman to Travel to Every Country in the World? 2 - Huffington Post - https://www.huffpost.com/entry/is-the-media-spreading-fake-news_b_59209876e4b0e8f558bb2716 3 - Rapid Travel Chai - The Women Who Have Traveled to Every Country in the World (Media Fact-Checking Guide) February 15, 2017 4 - RTL - https://www.rtl-hessen.de/beitrag/frankfurter-autorin-nina-sedano-ist-die-laendersammlerin 5 - Wikipedia - https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nina_Sedano 6 - Bild - https://www.bild.de/regional/frankfurt/frankfurt-aktuell/frankfurt-laendersammlerin-nina-sedano-hat-neue-abenteuer-erlebt-61535192.bild.html 7 - Lovely Books - https://www.lovelybooks.de/autor/Nina-Sedano/ 8 - Schoener Denken - https://schoener-denken.de/blog/die-laendersammlerin/ 9 - New York Times - https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/25/travel/solo-female-travel.html

We can absolutely cover the controversy if it is discussed by reliable sources, but accusing a living person of making a false claim needs a better source than the one you added to the article. Please see WP:BLP and WP:RS. —Granger (talk · contribs) 12:31, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for this information. I see you noted that BuzzFeed was a source and should be discredited because of that. There are no sources from BuzzFeed. Look at The New York Times correction. Look at previous versions of the The New York Times story to see the correction that needed to be made based off of what she seems to be claiming. Will revise, but please make sure to actually look at the sources please.
