Wikipedia co-founder says Wikipedia has been taken over by leftists and can't be trusted
· · Jul 17, 2021 ·

You know it's bad when the co-founder is calling his own site an enemy of democracy.

Next time you need to drop the on someone, you might want to think twice about citing Wikipedia.

Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger recently put the site on blast, saying it only allows citations from "globalist, progressive mainstream sources — and sources friendly to globalist progressivism."

"Wikipedia is more one-sided than ever," Sanger said.

"It is not too far to say that Wikipedia, like many other deeply biased institutions of our brave new digital world, has made itself into a kind of thought police that has de facto shackled conservative viewpoints with which they disagree."

"Democracy cannot thrive under such conditions. I maintain that Wikipedia has become an opponent of vigorous democracy."

He also said some sites are straight-up banned from being used as citations, such as the Daily Mail and Fox News on socio-political issues.

"There are a lot of people who would be highly motivated to go in and make the article more politically neutral but they're not allowed to," Sanger said.

"If only one version of the facts is allowed then that gives a huge incentive to wealthy and powerful people to seize control of things like Wikipedia in order to shore up their power."

Sanger referred to Wikipedia's Joe Biden article to demonstrate the site's bias.

"Biden's article, if you look at it, has very few concerns Republicans had about it. So if you want to have something that remotely resembles the Republican take on Biden, you're not going to get it from the article," Sanger said.

"And there is a paragraph – and it's quite a long article, so there should be at least one paragraph – on the Ukrainian scandal. Very little of this can be found in Wikipedia. The little that can be found is extremely biased and really reads like a defense attorney's brief."

The Wikipedia article dismisses the allegations, saying "no evidence was produced of any wrongdoing by the Bidens," and that "[t]he media widely interpreted this pressure to investigate the Bidens as trying to hurt Biden's chances of winning the presidency."

Wikipedia thinks we can trust ThE MeDiA to interpret the truth correctly. You know, the super-liberal, totally biased, and in-the-tank for Biden media? Yeah, that media. What a joke.

Oh, and by the way, there's nothing in the Biden article about Hunter Biden's laptop. But that's probably not much of a surprise anyway, seeing as the Bigtechtatorship made it their mission to bury that story in the depths of the earth.
