Obama supporters at Wikipedia have censored information about his “transparency”

Wikipedia’s article Presidency of Barack Obama has a section called “Transparency.” The section contains various claims by Obama about how supposedly transparent his administration is.

A crazy person who lives in my apartment building added some examples of Obama’s non-transparency to the section. However, the Obama supporters at Wikipedia erased them, and banned the account of the person who had added them.

Wikipedia’s Obamacare article continues to knowingly and deliberately include false information

On October 15, 2013, I posted Wikipedia’s article on Obamacare is a heavily censored, utopian puff piece that ignores Obamacare’s real world problems

On November 6, 2013, I followed that up with Wikipedia’s Obamacare article continues to be a heavily biased and censored puff piece

Now, on November 30, 2013, I am writing part 3 of this series.

Wikipedia’s Obamacare article continues to be a heavily biased and censored puff piece

On October 15, 2013, I wrote this blog entry, titled “Wikipedia’s article on Obamacare is a heavily censored, utopian puff piece that ignores Obamacare’s real world problems.”

Well it is now November 6, 2013, and I am writing this new blog entry on the same subject.

As of November 6, 2013, more than a month after the Obamacare website went online, wikipedia’s Obamacare article still includes absolutely zero content on the problems of the Obamacare website, Obama’s false promise that people could keep their insurance, or the rate shock that people felt when they saw their new, higher premiums.

Wikpedia has an entire article – with 38 citations – for Read my lips: no new taxes. But it won’t allow even one sentence about Obama’s broken promise that people could keep their insurance.

I’m glad that that Bush article is there. That was a notable lie that Bush told, and it deserves its own wikipedia article. The fact that wikipedia won’t allow any mention at all of Obama’s broken promise about letting people keep their insurance is a sad reflection of the bias that exists at wikipedia.

Wikipedia’s article on Obamacare is a heavily censored, utopian puff piece that ignores Obamacare’s real world problems

Wikipedia’s Obamacare article ignores almost every single criticism of Obamacare that has been reported on by the news, and of the few that it does mention, it severely understates the problem. Some of these criticisms did get added to the article, but they were deleted.

So, some crazy person suggested, on the article’s talk page, that a few specific criticisms be added to the article, such as the healthcare.gov website not working, the large number of employers who have switched to a 29 hour work week (the article mentions, but severely understates, this problem), Obama’s broken promise of letting people keep their insurance, Obamacare “rate shock,” the politicians and unions who supported Obamacare but requested and obtained waivers for themselves, and a few other things. And this person posted links to reliable sources for all of them.

Not only were these suggestions deleted from the talk page, but the user who posted these suggestions was banned.

As a result, wikipedia’s article on Obamacare is about the promises of Obamacare, instead of the actual real world results of Obamacare.

Of course this violates wikipedia’s policy of requiring articles to be true and accurate and unbiased, but hey, wikipedia is controlled by Obama supporters – all the conservatives and libertarians who who tried to balance out the various Obama articles with reliably sourced criticism have been banned from wikipedia for doing so.

Obama supporters at wikipedia have repeatedly censored information about Obama’s involvement with Solyndra

Obama supporters at wikipedia  have repeatedly deleted certain information from wikipedia’s Solyndra article. This information has been added to the article multiple times, but it 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 the Solyndra article 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…)

Wikipedia falsely implies that President Obama has stopped waging war against medical marijuana.

Wikipedia has an article called Presidency of Barack Obama.

Regarding the subject of medical marijuana, the article states:

On October 19, 2009, the U.S. Department of Justice issued a directive to federal prosecutors in states with medical marijuana laws not to investigate or prosecute cases of marijuana use or production done in compliance with those laws.

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…)
