From Freddie Sayers at UnHerd & UnHerd YouTube channel
Wikipedia is one of the world's largest website, it has come to replace the old encyclopaedia and is a place where millions go to get their 'facts'
This battle of ideas on Wikipedia’s platform formed a crucial part of the encyclopaedia’s commitment to neutrality, which according to Sanger, was abandoned after 2009. In the years since, on issues ranging from Covid to Joe Biden, it has become increasingly partisan, primarily espousing an establishment viewpoint that increasingly represents “propaganda”.
This, says Sanger, is why he left the site in 2007, describing it as “broken beyond repair”.
On the sites left wing bias he says,#
You can’t cite the Daily Mail at all. You can’t cite Fox News on socio-political issues either. It’s banned. So what does that mean? It means that if a controversy does not appear in the mainstream centre-Left media, then it’s not going to appear on Wikipedia.
