When did Stanley Dunham move to Seattle with Obama: 1961 or 1962? (University of Washington, Wikipedia) - 01/19/11

... Hawaii (for examples, see the Wikipedia page at [7]). Yet, a friend of Dunham describes a visit to Seattle in August 1961 [1]. Another account has a neighbor describing babysitting for Barack Obama in Seattle in the January to March of 1962 timeframe [2] [3]. Note that [3] references Stanley Obama attending night classes; whether that backs up claims that she was in Seattle in August 1961 isn't...

State Dep't doesn't have passport records for Stanley Dunham before 1968; conflicting marriage information - 08/02/10

... with the above. For instance, Wikipedia currently states "[t]hey married March 15, 1965" and links to this.

WorldNetDaily shows why nothing in Wikipedia can be trusted - 12/31/09

... some of the vandalism of their Wikipedia entry and of their editor Joseph Farah here. It includes lots of smears and lies, and it shows yet again how nothing you read in Wikipedia can be trusted. To illustrate that, on November 16 of this year, someone changed Farah's entry to include this: "It is a widely known rumour that Mr. Farah is a closet homosexual and has been repeatedly criticized for...

Wikipedia used to spread AGW propaganda? (global warming) - 12/19/09

Wikipedia is little more than a propaganda source that allows interested, mostly left-leaning but certainly establishment-supporting parties to spread disinformation. And, it seems like one of those involved in Climategate may have been using Wikipedia to present biased coverage of global warming.

Another reason parents might want to ban Wikipedia from schools and libraries - 07/14/09

... about this. On the one hand, Wikipedia is little more than a disinformation source that presents a biased, mostly leftwing Beltway establishment view of U.S. politics. And, due to its innumerable inaccuracies it's already been banned from some schools and libraries or at least forbidden as a reference. On the other hand, exposing it to sunlight is the best desiccant. However, parents of young...

Barack Obama gave differing accounts of which hospital he was born in (Wikipedia and Snopes too) (+Bill Press) - 07/08/09

... Yet, not only have Snopes and Wikipedia given differing accounts of which hospital he was born in, but so has Obama himself. How can anyone claim to know for a fact that he was born there at the same time as giving differing accounts of which hospital it was? That doesn't mean he wasn't born in Honolulu, it just means that none of those sources are credible and it's yet another example of how...

Wikipedia helps NYT hide truth about David Rohde kidnapping; "Reliable Sources" - 06/29/09

... secret was Jimmy Wales, head of Wikipedia. The details - at least from the NYT side of things - is in "Keeping News of Kidnapping Off Wikipedia" by Richard Perez Pena (link). There certainly is a strong moral side to this issue, but at the same time it's highly doubtful that Wales would have done the same for a reporter from, say, CNS News or for an independent such as Michael Yon (who told the...

WikiQuote's bogus, circular smear of Rush Limbaugh (Jack Huberman; James Earl Ray quote) - 06/17/09

Wikiquote - affiliated with Wikipedia - is using as a source for an almost assuredly bogus and highly inflammatory Rush Limbaugh quote a book that was published 10 months after the unattributed quote was added to the same Wikiquote page. The 06:01, 20 July 2005 revision of en.wikiquote.org/w/index.php?title=Rush_Limbaugh (by someone using the IP address 69.64.213.146, more at [1]) was the first...

Wikipedia misleads, smears about Obama citizenship "conspiracy theory" - 03/09/09

Wikipedia has a page called "Barack Obama citizenship conspiracy theories" (en.wikipedia .org/wiki/Barack_Obama_citizenship_conspiracy_theories) that smears those who have questions about where Obama was born and whether he's eligible to be president as fringe conspiracy theorists. And, as will be shown below, that page has been grossly misleading visitors about this issue for almost two and a...

WorldNetDaily, Newsbusters criticize Wikipedia while helping it - 03/08/09

WorldNetDaily informs us that "Wikipedia scrubs Obama eligibility/Mention of citizenship issues deleted in minutes, 'offending' users banned" (wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=91114). They're right about that, but at the same time as criticizing Wikipedia they also help that site by linking to it. The best way to deal with WP is to stop linking to it and encourage others to do the same....

Citizen journalists: how to increase the effectiveness of your criticism - 01/25/09

This post will look at three rightwing blog postings and describe how they could have been more effective. I keep seeing people make these same mistakes and - to be frank - to a certain extent I don't want them to do things the better way since that's more competition for me. On the other hand, another mistake they and similar people make is to not read this site, so it all evens out.

ZXY4931 is my new Wikipedia username - 01/16/09

I've used the Wikipedia username "LonewackoDotCom" since 2005 or before, and no one's raised any issues with that name. However, after a recent attempt to post the indisputable facts about the Obama citizenship issue to the Barack Obama talk page at Wikipedia, one of their users indefinitely blocked me, claiming that my username violated their guidelines. They don't allow domain names in their...

Obama "Energy Czar" Carol Browner's membership in Socialist panel scrubbed from website, Wikipedia - 01/10/09

... here. The scrubbing continued at Wikipedia, where the news that she was a member of that panel was deleted by someone using an IP address belonging to The New Republic; see this. Here's her biography as listed by the SI: Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency under President Bill Clinton. Leading the EPA from 1993 to 2001, she was the longest-serving Administrator...

Obama strategist David Axelrod owns "astroturfing" company (ASK Public Strategies) - 09/11/08

... following line to the start of his Wikipedia page; let's see how long it stays there: He operates ASK Public Strategies, a company that allegedly engages in "astroturfing" [http://www.businessweek.com/bwdaily/dnflash/content/mar2008/db20080314_121054.htm]. 9/29/08 15:55 PST UPDATE: At this exact moment, someone else has provided a full section on ASK at his WP page, what will happen to it is...

Eve Fairbanks misleads about Wikipedia (+Kevin Drum) - 04/15/08

... two "liberals" tell you that Wikipedia isn't biased towards the "liberal" side of things, doesn't that prove that it is biased, especially when the two "liberals" aren't exactly known for thinking things through? OK, it's not proof, but it is a strong indicator, as Kevin Drum [1] approvingly directs our attention to the post from Eve Fairbanks [2] of the New Republic (also home to Jim Kirchik...

AVWatch: will facts stick in Villaraigosa's Wikipedia entry? - 02/08/07

... designed to show how unreliable Wikipedia is, I added some long-missing facts to the WP entry for Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Then, someone else came along and junked the paragraph I added up a bit. Then, problem administrator "Will Beback" added 'citation needed' marks to the junked-up paragraph, and I noted at the time that that was most likely a pretext to remove the whole...

How not to criticize Wikipedia - 02/05/07

... Anti-Conservative Bias Rampant At Wikipedia" (newsbusters . org/node/10615). He's definitely right about that, but I don't think he fully groks that the only way to correct that bias is for conservatives to be more tenacious than those on the other side who currently spend a lot of time making sure WP's articles match their ideology. Lacking that, the only thing to do is to point out to anyone...

Bloggers: stop linking to Wikipedia - 01/22/07

... Wales [1], the English version of Wikipedia has started using the "nofollow" tag on all external links (the foreign language versions had been doing that for a while). That tag tells search engines to not pass any "search engine juice" (e.g., PageRank) from the WP page to the linked page. While sites that have links in WP will continue to receive visitors from those links, they will (supposedly...

"Wikipedia Celebrates 750 Years Of American Independence" - 07/31/06

From this fine news source: Wikipedia, the online, reader-edited encyclopedia, honored the 750th anniversary of American independence on July 25 with a special featured section on its main page Tuesday... ..."On July 25, 1256, delegates gathered at Comerica Park to sign the Declaration Of Independence, which rejected the rule of the British over its 15 coastal North American colonies," reads...

Wikipedia Watch: You'd think she was Mother Teresa - 01/11/05

Can Wikipedia be trusted? Here's their article (en . wikipedia . org / wiki / Haunani-Kay_Trask) on Hawaiian separatist and University of Hawaii professor Haunani Kay Trask. Until you get to the very last link you'd think everything was just haole-dory. But, there at the bottom - added by an unknown and lone contributor, appears a link to the article Hate America Professor (frontpagemag . com/...
