Wikipedia’s Bias

I love Wikipedia! I even donated to it. But I won’t donate again, now that I’ve learned how BIASED Wikipedia has become.

No right-leaning outlets, Fox News Politics, the Daily Wire, the Daily Caller, etc… is considered “reliable” by Wikipedia. None.

But even some of the most extreme leftist outlets get a "reliable" badge — like “Jacobin," a self-described SOCIALIST outlet.

Vox, Buzzfeed News, and Slate are also deemed “reliable” by Wikipedia. Editors may base stories on their reporting.

Why did Wikipedia become so biased? Veteran Wikipedian Jonathan Weiss tells me that the site, like academia, has been captured by leftists.

Some Wikipedia administrators even brag on their profiles, "this user is a socialist." Another put up images idolizing communist murderers Che Guevara and Vladimir Lenin.

These administrators make final decisions about what counts as “reliable," and what goes on Wikipedia.

That’s why for years, Wiki’s "communism" page made NO mention of the millions killed by that ideology.

US border facilities are listed under "concentration camps,” on the same page as Wikipedia’s holocaust facilities.

Can we fix this? Wikipedia is supposed to be a site that "anyone can edit," so I made an edit. You can find out what happened in the video above.
