Wikipedia, the massive Internet encyclopedia that bills itself as a “neutral” source of information, “representing fairly, proportionately, and, as far as possible, without editorial bias, all the significant views”, doesn’t seem to live up to their own standard when it comes to Donald Trump Jr’s entry.
The Wiki entry for Trump Jr refers to him as a “conspiracy theorist” who “cooperated with Russia in their interference in the 2016 United States elections” and “had a key role in inciting the 2021 storming of the United States Capitol” and “encouraged the mob attack“.
Of course, these aren’t just not “neutral”, they are outright lies.
And their claim that he had a “key role” in “inciting” the capitol riot is absurd on its face. Their “source” for this is Joe-Freakin-Scarborough and some completely out-of-context quotes.
Neutral. Very neutral.
I, also, couldn’t help but notice Wikipedia’s glowing entry on Hillary Clinton, which downplays her involvement in several scandals, including Benghazi and the email server controversy, and has no mention of her claims that the 2016 election was stolen.
Here is what Wikipedia has to say about ‘Servergate‘:
Her use of a private email server when she was Secretary of State was the subject of intense scrutiny; while no charges were filed against Clinton, the email controversy was the single most covered topic during the 2016 presidential election
That’s it? Just some Republican conspiracy then, I guess.
Wikipedia, no doubt, will continue to be sourced by the Left as a neutral authority. And Facebook surely won’t stamp them with “false” fact-check labels.
