Wikipedia Bias

Filed under: Internet — Sisyphus @ 8:30 am

Once again, the evidence of wikipedia’s left-wing bias is immediately forthcoming:

On September 3, 1997, Meredith O’Rourke, an employee of Kansas firm Triad Management Services, was deposed by the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs regarding her activities and observations while providing services for the company relative to fund raising and advertising for Brownback. In her deposition, she states that campaign management for Brownback’s campaign had provided Triad with a list of current donors, specifically those who had “maxed out” on the federal contribution limit of $2100. Altogether, the deposition covers 174 pages and describes the manner in which Triad and Brownback circumvented existing campaign finance laws by channeling donations through Triad, and also bypassed the law with Triad running ‘issue ads’ during Brownback’s first campaign for the Senate. The hearings regarding Brownback’s campaign were abruptly halted after O’Rourke’s testimony at the behest of the committee chair, Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN). It is also worthwhile to note that Senator Brownback was also a member of this committee at the time of the depostion.

The only source for this nonsense (apart from O’Rourke’s own self-interested testimony) is a Washington Post article. That’s right, the same Washington Post that employed Woodward, Bernstein, Ben Bradlee, and the other America-haters. Then, they took down one of our greatest Presidents, Richard Nixon, for doing nothing in particular; now, they’re trying to take down our greatest Presidential candidate, Sam Brownback, for the same lack of reason. Nice try, Wikimaniacs!

Luckily, real Americans can now access real information from a more reliable source, Conservapedia. Although their information on Brownback is, currently, somewhat scanty, I’m sure that will quickly be remedied as this campaign carries itself aloft over the heads of its pygmy adversaries. Maybe some of our own readers can take care of that for us, although it seems difficult to create a new Conservapedia account right now.

  1. Amazing that Wikipedia allows such insignificant unsubstantiated gossip to prevail in their “encyclopedia” of liberal “knowledge.” Anything to smear anyone to the right of Karl Marx. Conservapedia is a great idea but it’s got a long ways to go.

  2. I just hope Conservapedia “opens its books” to new members soon. I have quite a few smears of liberal bias to correct.

  3. Sisyphus, you may want to watch Andrew Schlafly’s Conservapedia page.

    We will reopen to new users once we complete an upgrade to faster speed and make sure we can comfortably handle the vandals. Thanks for your patience.–Aschlafly 14:22, 27 February 2007 (EST)

    You may want to ask on his Wikipedia “talk” page to expand the Conservapedia Page for Sam Brownback. Maybe he could link to this website! After all, both are new ventures and (hopefully) share a common cause.

    I know he’s been a Wikipedia editor in the past, but I don’t know his user name there. I remember seeing a fight about the deletion of the Conservapedia page (on Wikipedia) and he was there, but I can’t find it now.

  4. Why can’t liberals play politics on the issues? Why must they always resort to the politics of personal destruction?

    It’s hardly Brownback’s fault that some other group zealously supported his candidacy.

  5. Why can’t a leopard change its spots? Why can’t the liberal media report the truth? These are all imponderables, Harry. I, myself, may support Brownback zealously, but it’s not his fault. I take full responsibility!
