From Conservapedia

This page contains the items that were once on the "Breaking News" section of the Main Page. The articles are mainly about Wikipedia.

  1. Liberals at the University of California, Davis, force the regents to rescind an invitation to Larry Summers, the former president of Harvard University, to speak at a board dinner Wednesday night in Sacramento. Why? Because Summers once suggested that innate differences between men and women could be a reason for under-representation of women in science, math and engineering. Liberals censor anyone who claims there are any work-related differences between men and women, just as they do at Wikipedia! [1]
  2. Conservapedia surpasses 22 million page views!!!! We achieved this milestone without Wikipedia-style gossip.
  3. Wikipedia has two million entries, but no entry for liberal! Instead, it seems to pretend that the term does not exist, redirecting users to "liberalism" which fails even to explain what a liberal is. See Bias in Wikipedia.
  4. Wikipedia thinks deceit is a "post-punk" rock album that is "austere, brilliant and indescribable."[2] Wikipedia does not have an entry on deceit that explains it correctly, and Wikipedia fails to give meaningful examples as Conservapedia does here. See also Bias in Wikipedia.
  5. Here's a twist - CNN Covers NYT's ‘Jerk’ Jab at Bush, Fox Ignores It. An employee at the New York Times defaces a Wikipedia entry on President George W. Bush. NewsBusters story [3]
  6. BBC IP Edits Bush Wikipedia Entry. An employee at the BBC vandalizes a Wikipedia entry on President George W. Bush. NewsBusters story [4]
  7. Ever wonder why Wikipedia entries are filled with so much junk? This recommendation has been telling people to add lots of filler to entries so that people won't notice the harmful stuff.[5] Is it any wonder that intelligent editors are moving to higher quality sites?
  8. "The Wikipedia is a pernicious counter-cultural phenomenon. It does not elevate or celebrate knowledge."[6]
  9. Wikia, by the way, is a "for-profit company" attempting to make a fortune for its owners in part by overruling the Wikipedia volunteers.[7][8] How long before the Wikipedia volunteers wise up and revolt?
  10. Wikipedia Search Engine to Let Users Influence Web Results Rankings. Jimmy Wales said ""When I opened Wikipedia with only three articles in it, it was a pretty bad encyclopedia". Wikipedia is the National Enquirer of the Internet and has at least 65 examples of liberal bias. [9]
  11. More evidence that Wikipedia is just a liberal smear factory:
    1. Smears in its entry on U.S. Congressman Steve LaTourette were totally false.[10]
    2. Another smear by Wikipedia: its last sentence on Human Life International claimed that a killer "confessed that pamphets (sic) from the group led" him to kill. This is a complete lie designed to smear a conservative group. But this was approved by Wikipedia and remained for over a month. [11]
    3. The latest casualty of false smears on Wikipedia: the Sydney Morning Herald(SMH). "Like Wikipedia itself, the SMH's story was riddled with inaccuracies." With respect to that storywriter's own entry, "Though Wikipedia's editors were alerted to its grossly inaccurate content some years ago, it remains grotesquely inaccurate." [12]
    4. The New York Times' computer system was the source of the pre-election smear on Republicans and Tom DeLay at Wikipedia, calling him the "Grand Dragon" of the Republican Party just prior to the November 2006 elections. How many other liberal smears of conservatives come from the New York Times?
    5. More evidence that Wikipedia allows (if not encourages) smears, libel, and general misinformation and bias in its articles:
      "...somebody from a computer traced to Democrat HQ edited a page on conservative American radio host Rush Limbaugh, calling him 'idiotic', 'ridiculous' and labeling his 20 million listeners as legally retarded.'" [13]
    6. its entry on liberal former Vice President Al Gore contains no mention of drug charges against his son, but its entry on conservative Vice President Dick Cheney prominently mentions his adult daughter's sexuality.[example #1]
    7. Wikipedia smears prominent Christian conservatives, including James Dobson and D. James Kennedy, with an allegation that they are part of a grand scheme Wikipedia calls "Dominionism"[example #3]
    8. Its last sentence on Human Life International claimed that a killer "confessed that pamphets (sic) from the group led" him to kill. This is a complete lie designed to smear a conservative group. But this was approved by Wikipedia and remained for over a month.[14]
    9. Smears in its entry on U.S. Congressman Steve LaTourette were totally false.[15]
  12. Wikipedia continues to lose credibility:
    1. "Larry Sanger, who founded Wikipedia in 2001 with Jimmy Wales only to leave shortly afterwards, said that even as far back as 2001 the Wikipedia community 'had no respect for experts.'" [16]
  13. Wikipedia: the National Enquirer of the Internet.
  14. Wikipedia editors reported on the death of wrestler Chris Benoit's wife hours before the police found out; now the cops want to know how and why: [17] [18]
