Wikipedia biased смотреть последние обновления за сегодня на .
I love Wikipedia! I even donated to it. But I won't donate again, now that I've learned how BIASED Wikipedia has become. ———— To make sure you see the new weekly video from Stossel TV, sign up here: 🤍 ———— 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 above.
Is Wikipedia a reliable source, or is it as prone to bias and false information as any other media outlet? In this video, we explore the fundamental problems of modern Wikipedia, and discover how the website regularly lies to its readers. One of the most basic lies Wikipedia tells is that it has a neutrality policy - in reality, the policy has glaring flaws. It's frequently used to assert liberal left worldviews as fact, as if they were the neutral statements of truth. On issues including (but not limited to) race and crime, drug legalization, and even religion, Wikipedia presents unbalanced and in some cases outright misleading information. The website has gotten to the point that its own co-founder, Larry Sanger, even wrote an article verbally destroying it. The article, titled 'Wikipedia Is Badly Biased' will be linked below. Other sources, including the many different studies documenting Wikipedia's left wing bias, are also linked. Follow me on other platforms!

"Clown World Journalism" is the best phrase I can think of to describe the difference between Wikileaks' scientific journalism and Wikipedia's obsession with secondary editorialized sources over hard facts. Wikipedia has a lot of problems, and the way that Wikileaks looks at journalism provides an interesting look into why Wikipedia has these problems. Biased sources, prejudiced editors, and a culture of complex gatekeeping have degenerated the once very usable site into being merely a mouthpiece for special interest establishment propaganda.

Freddie Sayers meets Larry Sanger. Listen to the podcast version: 🤍 Read the full article here: 🤍 Chances are, if you’ve ever been on the internet, you’ve visited Wikipedia. It is the world’s fifth largest website, pulling in an estimated 6.1 billion followers per month and serves as a cheat sheet for almost any topic in the world. So great is the online encyclopaedia’s influence is so great that it is the biggest and “most read reference work in history”, with as many as 56 million editions. But the truth about this supposedly neutral purveyor of information is a little more complex. Historically, Wikipedia has been written and monitored by a community of volunteers who collaborated and contested competing claims with one another. In the words of Wikipedia’s co-founder, Larry Sanger who spoke to Freddie Sayers on LockdownTV, these volunteers would “battle it out”. 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”. Follow UnHerd on social media: Twitter: 🤍 Facebook: 🤍 #wikipedia #covid19 #bias

We spoke with one of Wikipedia's co-founders, Larry Sanger, who says the site has lost its neutral point of view and become biased. For example, he points to the site's article on former President Obama. It completely leaves out the Benghazi scandal where he repeatedly refused to beef up security before the attack on the diplomatic compound in Libya. Sanger tells us why he thinks Wikipedia is a lost cause. 💎Subscribe to NTD UK NEWS: 🤍 💎Follow us on Facebook: 🤍 💎Follow us on Instagram: 🤍 💎Join us on Telegram: 🤍 #NTDUK #News #UKNews More videos: 🤍

If you watched any of my recent videos and had a look at the description or the comment sections, you will have seen one thing. Wikipedia. And lots of angry people who say I shouldn’t use it at a source. It’s gotten so bad that I added an angry disclaimer to my last descriptions because I was frustrated with what I saw as unproductive feedback. Among that was this one tweet which got more likes and retweets than I am comfortable with. It seems some people have serious issues with my choice of sources. So, I am making this video to explain what Wikipedia is, how it works, why it can be a bad source, examples of bias and whether I will keep using it despite all that. And yes, just to prove I can, this video will not cite Wikipedia at all. That being said, let’s start with, what is Wikipedia? Wikipedia is a free online encyclopaedia run by the Wikipedia foundation who are a non-profit organisation. The information on the different pages is added and edited by users. Anyone can make a change. Which seems like it is ripe for misinformation, but if someone makes a change without a citation that change will be overruled. There are volunteer administrators who more or less sign off on the changes people propose. There are unchecked changes on small articles but those are rare. And if the citation is missing then it will say “citation needed”, and there will be a disclaimer telling you that the information may not be reliable. Personally, I once tried to write a Wikipedia article on the new religion I invented, long story. It was immediately flagged by a bot and deleted by an admin. These admins have rights others don’t have, for example they can ban users if they behave badly or make bad faith edits, and if it’s an anonymous user they will ban their IP address. The administrators can also make a page protected. If we look at the page of world war two we can see this little padlock here which tells us this page is protected, meaning without an account you can’t change anything about it. And an account needs to be established before you can make changes. As you can imagine this is used on loads of pages to protect them from vandalism.
Wikipedia has had to block many people from editing their site because of biased opinions that may not be exactly truthful.
Confirmation bias is a tendency to look for, interpret, and recall information in ways that affirm our preconception. Whenever we encounter objective facts on an issue we look at them through the lens of our own beliefs. As a result, we see and overrate where the two intercept. The bias is strongest for emotionally charged issues or when we search for desired outcomes. This joke illustrates it quite well...
