  • VIDEO: Robby Soave Absurdly Claims that "Wikipedia Is Generally Pretty Accurate"

    VIDEORobby Soave, one of the hosts, of "The Hill Rising" channel normally has a smarmy vibe going on just below the surface. However, on a recent discussion about Joe Rogan's interview with Dr. Peter McCullough on his podcast, Soave's smarminess went through the roof when he admitted he that didn't know much about McCullough so he consulted his Wikipedia page. This led Soave to conclude authoritatively that McCullough said some things that are supposedly not true. Soave then defended his ridiculous reliance on Wikipedia by stating that "Wikipedia is generally pretty accurate" as if that settled the argument.
  • NIH: Check Out Wikipedia to See Why Great Barrington Declaration is ‘Dangerous’

    The Epoch Times ^ | December 24, 2021 | Zachary Stieber
    The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and its top officials are doubling down on criticism of the Great Barrington Declaration after emails showed they quickly moved last year to oppose it. The declaration, penned last year, said lockdowns were producing negative short- and long-term effects on public health, such as lower childhood vaccination rates, fewer cancer screenings, and worsening mental health. The experts who signed on called for focusing COVID-19 prevention efforts on the most vulnerable, particularly the elderly, while loosening restrictions on the young and healthy, who are at little risk of developing severe COVID-19.Dr. Martin Kulldorff, at the...
  • Julian Assange has a stroke in Belmarsh prison: Fiancée blames extreme stress caused by US extradition battle

    Julian Assange has had a stroke in Belmarsh Prison, his fiancee Stella Moris revealed last night. The WikiLeaks publisher, 50, who is being held on remand in the maximum-security jail while fighting extradition to America, was left with a drooping right eyelid, memory problems and signs of neurological damage. He believes the mini-stroke was triggered by the stress of the ongoing US court action against him, and an overall decline in his health as he faces his third Christmas behind bars.

    The Wikipedia entry for “mass killings under Communist regimes” is reportedly under threat of being removed from the platform over claims of bias. The Telegraph reports that a Wikipedia entry which details “mass killings under Communist regimes,” is at risk of deletion over claims of bias within the entry. The Wikipedia page which outlines the details of millions of people under one-party Communist regimes such as the Soviet Union and China has been flagged for deletion.
  • 'Mass Killings Under Communist Regimes' Wikipedia Page 'Being Considered for Deletion'

    It’s like people want you to know how far left they are at this point. Basically, tell us you could possibly be communists without telling us that you could possibly be communists. Wikipedia, probably one of the least reputable sources someone could use, now has a very specific article listing the number of “Mass killings under communist regimes” that is “being considered for deletion.” All of the disputes being raised against the validity of the article were done in September. The disputes argue the “neutrality” and “verfiability,” which is a made-up word, of the numbers related to deaths under communist...
  • Media Lied, Wisconsin Massacre Driver Was NOT Being Pursued by Police Narrative established in early hours after tragedy falls apart.

    Media assertions in the immediate aftermath of the massacre in Waukesha that the killer did not deliberately drive into his victims because he was being ‘pursued by police’ have been proven completely untrue. Imagine my shock. In the early hours after the horror unfolded, the corporate press settled on the narrative that culprit Darrell Edward Brooks Jr was ‘fleeing the scene of a crime’ after being involved in a ‘knife fight’. BREAKING: CNN reports Waukesha driver who plowed into parade was fleeing another crime scene, not an act of terrorism or retaliation. — S.E. Cupp (@secupp) November 22, 2021 This...

    Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger is warning that the online encyclopedia is nothing like it used to be, when it used to aspire to neutrality. Now it easily comes up in Google searches of everything, and so it can't be ignored by powerful people.In an interview with Lockdown TV, Sanger said “Wikipedia is known, now, by everyone to have a lot of influence in the world … so there is a very big, nasty, complex game being played behind the scenes to make the articles say what somebody wants them to say.”

    Larry Sanger, who co-founded Wikipedia in 2001, says that the free online encyclopedia has become “more one-sided than ever” and is dominated by liberal sources in such a way that makes it “an opponent of vigorous democracy.” “Wikipedia openly repudiates neutrality, and therefore it is shamelessly hypocritical in how it continues to pay lip service to its “neutral point of view” policy,’” Sanger wrote on his website last week. “A lot of mainstream news stories are broken only in Fox News, the Daily Mail, and the New York Post—all of which are banned from use as sources by Wikipedia.” “In...

    Earlier this year, the Wikipedia page on GamerGate, the anti-corruption movement in gaming, saw extensive updates about the “legacy” of the movement and associated controversies. These edits pushed claims that GamerGate, which Wikipedia labels a “harassment campaign” due to a years-long effort by left-wing editors, helped Donald Trump become President in 2016 and that the movement even contributed to what the page called an “attempted coup” at the Capitol on January 6.

    A co-founder of Wikipedia is launching a competing website as a free-speech-friendly alternative to what he views as the increasingly monolithic left-wing bias of his former organization.Last May, Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger wrote an op-ed on his personal website titled "Wikipedia is Badly Biased" claiming that Wikipedia's neutrality policy — known as "NPOV," or neutral point of view — "is dead."Now, when schoolchildren visit the Wikipedia website to look up answers to questions about the meaning of socialism, "they're going to find an explanation that completely ignores any conservative, libertarian, or critical treatment of the subject," Sanger told "Just the...

    The man who originally created online encyclopedia Wikipedia is pledging to create a new platform to replace it, citing Wikipedia’s left-wing bias. Larry Sanger, who co-founded Wikipedia in 2001 before leaving the project, is describing his Encyclosphere as a networked aggregation of existing and new encyclopedia content, which will be distinguished from the colorful and unverified content slung onto Wikipedia by the site’s user base. Sanger envisions millions of people writing and submitting encyclopedia entries, which can be rated and judged for accuracy by their readers themselves, rather than the “arrogant and controlling oligarchy” Sanger maintains is running Wikipedia. Sanger...

    "The days of Wikipedia's robust commitment to neutrality are long gone," co-founder Larry Sanger said. Big tech has faced repeated accusations of bias and censorship, but one platform has escaped much scrutiny: Wikipedia. The online encyclopedia, which claims "anyone can edit", is the 13th most popular website in the world, according to Alexa's web rankings. Google gives it special placement in search results. But critics – including Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger – tell Fox News that many Wikipedia pages have become merely left-wing advocacy essays.

    Satire is not meant to be taken seriously. Yet Big Tech and its tools find a way to label any humor coming from the right as disinformation or fake news. The Babylon Bee has been repeatedly victimized by this tug of war. In a public history page known as a “Talk” page on Wikipedia, editors with anonymous tags or usernames discussed whether or not the conservative satire site could “legally be considered ‘satire’?” The alleged Twitter account for Bee managing editor Joel Berry tweeted a thread about this Wikipedia incident on Feb. 18. “There has been an ongoing effort to...
  • Impeachment as a Form of a CCP "Struggle Session"

    Struggle sessions were a form of public humiliation and torture used by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) at various times in the Mao era, particularly during the years immediately before and after the establishment of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and during the Cultural Revolution. The aim of struggle sessions was to shape public opinion, as well as to humiliate, persecute, or execute political rivals and those deemed class enemies.[1] In general, the victim of a struggle session was forced to admit various crimes before a crowd of people who would verbally and physically abuse the victim until they...

    Breitbart.com ^ | 11-28-20 | T. D. Adler
    Multiple academic studies and critical analyses of Wikipedia have pointed towards the site’s left-wing bias. The findings include its content being more left-leaning than Encyclopedia Britannica and left-leaning editors being more active and partisan than right-leaning editors. Left-wing outlets have been found to be the top-cited sources and represent most citations on articles about American politicians, and right-leaning editors have at the same time been found to be six times more likely to face sanctions. Such studies and analyses validate criticism from the site’s co-founder, Larry Sanger, who earlier this year declared Wikipedia’s neutrality policy “dead” due to left-wing bias...

    I'm listening to an author who has been banned by Amazon and YouTube, E. Michael Jones. He's big in the original thinking biz, really, just reading anyone who's anyone and collating the results. He talks about Oligarchs being in charge of what we think.At a certain video interview, culturewars.com/podcasts/logos-rising-on-the-friday-farcast, queued to about 19 minutes, you can't link, Jones is banned on YouTube. So, Dr Jones is talking about how science has co-opted ultimate reality. He's asking how Anthony Fauci still is in charge after some scandal or debacle he was apparently responsible for, foisting something called AZT onto poor AIDS...
