Wikipedia co-founder: "I no longer trust the website I created."

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”.

Indeed he did, I am guessing this guy keeps a low key and will be safe enough, but they don't want these people speaking out at all.

I first noticed something odd about Wikipedia when the West was having a '1970s revival' some years ago. There were a lot of us who were actually THERE in the 1970s who could see that the version of the 1970s portrayed was a fantasy. It scooped up shed-loads of 1960s and 1980s pop culture, and all the negative aspects of that ten years disappeared. I was anti-Thatcher/Reagan, but it suddenly occurred to me that this revisionism fell into an agenda of portraying all the 'nice' pop culture as belonging to the 1970s, and all the 'nasty' pop culture as belonging to the 1980s. So, we had the WONDERFUL 70s, comprised of lots of goodies from the 60s, 70s and 80s, and the AWFUL 80s, shorn of a lot of its great pop culture and left greedy and unpleasant. No evidence of polarisation. Wikipedia was a great leader in that movement. And I realised that something was underlying. Never trusted it after that.
