Is Wikipedia biased?

Published

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 below.

The Real Reason for Record Gas Prices

Published on

Who’s to blame for record high gas prices which in turn have made EVERYTHING more expensive?

Politicians are using the playbook of environmental activists who want desperately to slow everything down, every business, and every single person (who can’t afford endless price hikes).

Here’s Emmy Award winning journalist John Stossel.

Putin! Price gouging! Excess profit! Politicians blame the wrong things for record gas prices.  Politicians say higher prices are caused by “corporate greed.” Nonsense. Greed is a constant. Companies are always greedy. They were just as greedy when prices dropped. “If big oil could raise prices anytime they wanted … then why were they so cheap in 2020?” asks Ben Lieberman of the Competitive Enterprise Institute. He points out that the record price “all comes down to cutting back on supplies.” Exactly. Prices change because of supply and demand. Politicians, pushed by environmental activists, have restricted oil production.

The Truth about GMO’s

Published on

Each week journalist John Stossel releases another video debunking widely held but incorrect beliefs.  Here’s a big one.

We’ve all seen the growing Organic sections in our local grocery stores.  It’s a free country and that’s perfectly fine.

However as you’ll see in this entertaining and informative short video, this is one subject that really gets John Stossel’s goat.  Stossel is not happy that millions of people feel they’re letting their families down because they can’t afford to buy organic.  He’s also more than miffed that activists are preventing some of the world’s poorest people from getting the food they desperately need.  Watch as Stossel goes toe to toe with the ‘political director’ of the Organic Consumers Association.

“Natural” food activists say: Stop eating genetically-modified foods!

They’re wrong. GMO foods are safe. They don’t, as claimed, “cause cancer.” Over the last couple decades, cancer is down and lifespans are up.

In this video I debate the issue with Alexis Baden-Mayer, political director of the Organic Consumers Association.
