Biden Team makes frantic bids in editing Wikipedia

With the aim of altering the term “recession” on Wikipedia, supporters of Team Biden altered the page 47 times over a roughly 24-hour period, with an administrator locking unregistered users out until August. This was doe to hide the actual information on the inflation and recession in the United States under the presidency of Joe Biden.

According to reports, a Wikipedia user known as “Soibangla” edited the “recession” page to remove references to the standard definition of the term — two consecutive quarters of negative growth. The user added a line which read: “There is no global consensus on the definition of a recession”.

“Some editors then tried to rebuke Soibangla’s changes, only to then have another round of recession doubting editors change the article back to fit their ambiguous definitions”, the Daily Mail noted.

As of Friday morning, the Wikipedia “recession” page included a lock icon in the upper right hand corner indicating that it was placed in “semi-protection” mode whereby “unregistered users…as well as accounts that are not confirmed or autoconfirmed” would not be able to make changes to the text.

The definition of “recession” is being disputed by Team Biden following the latest economic data showing a two-quarter drop in GDP.

Wikipedia was widely slammed.

Elon Musk, the Tesla CEO and the world’s richest person with an estimated net worth of US$263 billion, tagged Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales in a tweet on Friday: “Wikipedia is losing its objectivity”.

“Wikipedia changed the definition of recession to favor the Biden regime, and then locked the page”, tweeted right-leaning social media personality Mike Cernovich.

“Can’t make Biden look bad before the midterm elections!” another Twitter user said.

The Commerce Department report on Thursday indicated that the US GDP fell by 0.9 percent in the last quarter. This is the second consecutive quarter that the national economy has contracted — which meets the traditional definition of a recession.

But the Biden administration has insisted that the economy is not in a recession. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday that the US is “in a period of transition in which growth is slowing and that’s necessary and appropriate and we need to be growing at a steady and sustainable pace”.

So, what’s next for the Wikipedia change-the-meaning brigade? Perhaps, inflation?

As Breitbart’s John Carney noted on Friday: “A key measure of inflation showed prices soaring by more than expected in June. The personal consumption expenditure price index rose by 6.8 percent compared with 12 months earlier, an acceleration of inflation from the 6.3 percent annual gain in May, according to data released Friday by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Economists had expected a slightly lower reading of 6.6 percent. This is the biggest year-over-year gain since January of 1982”.

Reactions to this editing spree:

Eric Pistey: This is what everyone should understand. Media & Giant Tech work hand & hand w/ Democrats. Now we live in a time where if something doesn’t fit Woke Left’s Narrative they literally just change the Definition they just changed definition of Recession to cover 4 Democrats & Biden.

Carson Walker: No matter who changes the definition, Wikipedia has always been questionable due to the fact that anyone can change anything at will. It’s not the National Archives. A Wiki definition doesn’t matter. We have many more things to worry about as a nation than an online encyclopedia.

Wikipedia, a propaganda platform for left-leaning establishment?

Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger has warned that the website can no longer be trusted — insisting it is now just “propaganda” for the left-leaning “establishment”.

Sanger told UnHerd’s Lockdown TV  that he started the “encyclopedia of opinion” in 2001 purely on the basis it would offer true neutrality and offer “multiple points of view” on “hot button issues”.

Now, he insisted, conservative voices are “sternly warned if not kicked out” if they try to add a different take on establishment views — which Sanger deemed “propaganda”.

“You can’t cite Fox News on socio-political issues. It’s just banned now”, he insisted of the apparent clampdown on respected conservative voices.

“It means that if a controversy does not appear in the mainstream center-left media, then it’s not going to appear on Wikipedia”, he said.

Now you can only rely on the site to “to give an establishment point of view”, rather than the diverse range of opinions it was set up to give, he insisted.

“If only one version of the facts is allowed then that gives a huge incentive to wealthy and powerful people to seize control of things like Wikipedia in order to shore up their power”, he said.
