    Bloomin lefties

    https://unherd.com/thepost/wikipedia...ite-i-created/

    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 Wikipedia’s Left-wing bias:

    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.

    Interesting .. so a website that tries to hold only actual correct facts does not allow links to the Wail and Fox News .. well, who'd have thunk it eh? It's almost as if the guys at Wiki think that Wail stories tend to err on the side of fiction and not fact

      How has "lefty" become a slur?

      In the 40 and 50's (the "Glory years!" eh?) , it was Righty that was the slur. Nationalism, Racism, Greed and Social injustice were the wrongs in the world. Now its the rights.. pardon the pun.

            No. And to be honest, I don't care who he is either. HTHs

                So a guy who left the company nearly 20 years ago, is slagging it off. Still bitter after all that time?

                And you think I should have heard of him why exactly? Or do you think I should know every unimportant and insignificant person in the world?

                    Wikipedia uses The Times and The Torygraph as references so the guy is talking bull. They clearly don't like using tabloids which The Fail is.
