I love Wikipedia. I donated thousands of dollars to the Wikimedia Foundation.
Before Wikipedia, all we had were printed encyclopedias — out of date by the time we bought them.
Then libertarian Jimmy Wales came up with a web-based, crowd-sourced encyclopedia.
Crowd-sourced? A Britannica editor called Wikipedia “a public restroom.” But Wales won the battle. Britannica’s encyclopedias are no longer printed.
Congratulations to Wales.
But recently I learned that Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger now says Wikipedia’s political pages have turned into leftist “propaganda.”
That’s upsetting. Leftists took over the editing?
Sadly, yes. I checked it out.
