Wikipedia Co-Founder: Site Has Become ‘Thought Police’ That ‘Shackles Conservative Viewpoints. By Matt Margolis.

Larry Sanger, who co-founded Wikipedia in 2001, says that the free online encyclopedia has become “more one-sided than ever” and is dominated by liberal sources in such a way that makes it “an opponent of vigorous democracy.”  …

“A lot of mainstream news stories are broken only in Fox News, the Daily Mail, and the New York Post — all of which are banned from use as sources by Wikipedia.”

“In short, and with few exceptions, only globalist, progressive mainstream sources — and sources friendly to globalist progressivism — are permitted,” he explained. …

 

 

“It is not too far to say that Wikipedia, like many other deeply biased institutions of our brave new digital world, has made itself into a kind of thought police that has de facto shackled conservative viewpoints with which they disagree,” Sanger added. “Democracy cannot thrive under such conditions: I maintain that Wikipedia has become an opponent of vigorous democracy.”

“If society’s main information sources march in ideological lockstep, they make a mockery of democracy. Then the wealthy and powerful need only gain control of the few approved organs of acceptable thought; then they will be able to manipulate and ultimately control all important political dialogue,” Sanger warned.

Everyone but the ideologically blind can see it.
