Wikipedia Co-Founder Says Online Encyclopedia is Now Largely Just “Leftist Propaganda”

Used as a tool to demonize contrarians and anyone on the right.

Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger has blasted the site for its slide into “leftist propaganda,” accusing it of long since abandoning impartiality and simply becoming an amplifier for mainstream news narratives.

Sanger co-founded Wikipedia with with Jimmy Wales in 2001.

During an interview with the Epoch Times, Sanger noted that the online encyclopedia began with noble intentions but is now just another tool to demonize people who challenge the consensus.

“Wikipedia made a real effort at neutrality for, I would say, its first five years or so,” said Sanger, adding, “And then … it began a long, slow slide into what I would call leftist propaganda.”

Wikipedia is run by around 125,000 volunteer editors, the vast majority of whom are leftists, with a further 1,000 administrators who enjoy special privileges to block others who go against the grain.

Sanger explained how Wikipedia now serves not just to skew information, but to viciously demonize anyone on the right or anyone deemed to be a “contrarian.”

Wikipedia “casts them as conspiracy theorists, are far right or whatever, when they and their friends and people who know them well would never describe them in that way,” Sanger said.

After banning sources such as Fox News or the Daily Mail, Wikipedia now relies almost entirely on far-left outlets and legacy media sources to determine truth.

“More recently, they’ve gotten rid of almost all conservative news sources as sources for their articles,” he said

“And so as the news media has shifted, and as the establishment, frankly, has shifted more to the left or to the left, the content of Wikipedia has followed suit.”

As we previously highlighted, a perfect example of Wikipedia’s extreme political bias was evident when the website’s editors deliberately sought to bury links between convicted sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton.

The fact that Clinton flew on Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’ private jet at least 26 times, which was reported by the media multiple times back in 2016, disappeared from Wikipedia before it was added back in after an outcry.

Editors also sought to scrub any of Epstein’s links to Clinton while amplifying his links to Donald Trump, which were less direct and less damaging.

YouTube BANS ‘The Vietnamese Alex Jones’ After Obsessive John Oliver Complained

The “comedian” is obsessed with getting people he doesn’t agree with censored

YouTube has banned a radio host after English “Comedian” John Oliver described him as ‘the Vietnamese Alex Jones’.

Oliver complained on his HBO show that “While Alex Jones has been removed from YouTube for spreading misinformation,” Nguy Vu, the host of King Radio, “is still going strong on the platform despite the fact you just heard him say ‘masks are killing people,’ which clearly violates YouTube’s ban on claims that wearing a mask is dangerous.”

Oliver further whined that “Alex Jones could find his way back on to Youchube (sic) if he could just complete a Rosetta Stone course in Vietnamese.”

Oliver also described YouTube and Facebook as “screamingly screamingly bad” but added that “at least in theory they can be monitored.”

Watch:

Oliver is obsessed with getting people he doesn’t agree with censored, silenced and kicked off big tech platforms, and pitches for it in almost every “comedy” show he does.

Oliver is also obsessed with Alex Jones, even though Jones is already banned from practically every mainstream platform.

Meanwhile, he is free to spread his own ‘misinformation’ every night of the week.

    TV Director Slammed For Comparing Treatment of Trans People To The HOLOCAUST

    “Trans people are in the middle of a Holocaust”

    A TV director who compared the attitude toward transgender people to the treatment of Jewish people during the Nazi holocaust has been roundly criticised for the comments.

    The comparison was made by Joey Soloway during a protest at Netflix headquarters over Dave Chapelle’s special The Closer in which he comments on biological gender.

    Soloway, who identifies as ‘nonbinary’, said that “Trans people are in the middle of a Holocaust,” further claiming they are being subjected to “apartheid, murder, a state of emergency, human rights crisis.”

    “The line is simple: stop making things worse,” Soloway said, demanding that Netflix appoint a trans person to its board “this f****** week.”

    The comments quickly sparked a backlash:

    And then there is this…

    Chapelle himself said at a recent performance that “If this is what being canceled is like, I love it,” adding “F*** Twitter. This is real life.”

    Meanwhile, Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos has indicated that he has “some regrets” about the Chapelle special, particularly that he “screwed up” communicating with Netflix staff who expressed outrage about it. Sarandos clarified, however, that the special will not be removed, saying that “While some employees disagree, we have a strong belief that content on screen doesn’t directly translate to real-world harm.”
