Internet users have long
known that Wikipedia’s coverage of political and controversial issues was
manipulated junk, but now in a small way, Wikipedia has admitted the fact.
“nonprofit” Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. which is owned by Google Inc. announced
on Monday, October 21 that it was investigating the manipulation
of Wikipedia articles by public relations and marketing firms who employed
hundreds of false accounts, known as sock puppets, to manipulate content on the
site. “It looks like this is manipulation on a scale we haven’t seen before in
the encyclopedia,” Sue Gardner, executive direction of the Wikimedia Foundation,
told press rather facetiously. “There has never been an investigation o this
scope, scale, duration, and seriousness."
Of course, Gardner’s claims are a fraud, as all of Wikipedia’s
content is the product of collaborative manipulation by various entities.
Google bought Wikipedia for the purpose of making Wikipedia’s articles express
Google’s views in the top level result for Google searches.
government has admitted paying informants to manipulate Wikipedia content.
Other governments and organizations, such as the Zionist entity in Palestine and American
Jewish groups, have been reported to do so. All of this is done with the
Wikimedia Foundation’s permission.
In this case, Wikipedia has suspended 250
editor accounts and is considering suspending hundreds more, claiming they are
linked to a group of hired writers who collaborate without ever using the talk
pages to communicate with each other. The writers are linked to a public
relations firm called Wiki-PR. Wiki-PR has openly admitted to hiring Wikipedia
editors. “We do paid editing,” Wiki-PR’s CEO told the Wall Street Journal.
Wikipedia has been a
pretentious and obnoxious pollutant of the internet for more than a decade. It
claims to provide unbiased and “encyclopedic” content, but it applies that to
modern persons and political issues by only providing views echoed in the
“mainstream” Zionist media, a policy it enforces by often requiring citations
to Zionist media organizations. As it does this, Wikipedia excludes alternate
or controversial opinions, and bars citations to alternative writers and the
Manipulation by the U.S. government has been particularly
problematic, as American prosecutors
have often paid informants to edit Wikipedia pages to bias juries in
controversial and high-profile cases.
Ultimately, Wikipedia’s objection appears
to be not to the manipulation of content, but to the manipulation of content in
a manner of which its bosses to not approve.
