Wikipedia is a Big Problem That Nobody is Talking About
By Chris Black
When your average normie wants to look something up for quick information, where do they go?
They are unlikely to critically examine the content of the article or the sources provided, which are typically going to be propaganda pieces by the mainstream press.
Wikipedia’s sourcing policy makes it nearly impossible to use anything other than mainstream media articles as “reputable sources” for anything having to do with current events, so naturally everything pertaining to current events is fully NPR-brained alternate reality stuff.
For instance, there is an entire cavalcade of “Trump admin scandal articles,” but virtually none about any of the scandals that happened under Obama.
Because that’s how the press chose to misrepresent reality.
We all know the Obama admin had numerous scandals; the IRS scandal, ATF gun walking, solar power money laundering, Ukraine crisis, it goes on.
The content on Wikipedia is nothing but a kind of “information laundering” lifted from mainstream press editorializing. And I’m really not sure what to do about it.
There are no real standards for regulating something like Wikipedia and it seems unlikely that there ever could be under the kind of government we have.
The worst thing about it is that Wikipedia has done a good job of selling itself as a “grassroots” source of information when it is, in fact, heavily curated by highly motivated ideologues.
But normies don’t know that…

“The articles are so biased, in fact, that it is fair to call them propaganda”:
