Please don't use Bobby to ascertain if any site meats a WCAG level.
It'll give you it's best guess if they have or not, but it is by no
means always correct. Bobby can point out suspected errors, but only a
human can decide if a site meats the guidelines.

Personally after a quick look, I think that Wired does pretty much
come up to WCAG level A. It certainly is a hell of a lot more
accessible than it used to be. Bobby flagging alt="" on an invisible
spacer gif as an error is idiotic.
