Wikipedia’s article “Presidency of Barack Obama” is a puff piece which ignores many critical issues.

Wikipedia’s article “Presidency of Barack Obama” is a puff piece which ignores many critical issues. These issues have been added to the article multiple times, but they always get erased. Editors who continue to add these things to the article get accused of “edit warring,” and if they continue to put the information into the article, they get blocked from editing for 24 hours. If they continue adding the information after their 24 hour block expires, they get blocked for a week, then they get topic banned from editing any Obama related articles for three months, and then they get banned, permanently, from editing any of wikipedia. If they then create a new account, they get accused of “sock puppeting,” and the new account gets permanently banned. (more…)

Gosh, that sure sounds lovely.

However, the following content has been deleted from the article: (more…)

Wikipedia’s double standard: Sarah Palin vs. Barack Obama

Wikipedia has an article called Alaska Public Safety Commissioner dismissal, which is about a controversy surrounding Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s firing of a government employee. The subject is notable, and deserves its own article. I’m glad that that article exists.

However, “Gerald Walpin firing,” an article which was about the controversy surrounding President Barack Obama’s firing of a government employee, was deleted, even though the article was reliably sourced, and even though a President is more notable than a governor. (more…)
