    Help - Noob - I messed something up

    So i am new to ubuntu and i was adding repos and sources and now synaptics manager just crashes and gives me an error and says

    "E: Type 'wget' is not known on line 57 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list
    E: The list of sources could not be read.
    Go to the repository dialog to correct the problem.
    E: _cache->open() failed, please report."

    how do I fix this
