Wikipedia Joins Censorship Racket with ‘Paid Protection’ Posts

As if it weren’t enough to have the mainstream media’s infotainment imbecility on our doorstep, Wikipedia is now coming under fire for malfeasance as well.

In society today, there is an embarrassing reality that we must face, in which information is so readily available that entire cottage industries have sprung up around the idea of herding and hoarding such knowledge.

Of course, it all began with the mainstream media; an “infotainment” complex of well-paid and ostensibly attractive people telling you what happened today, in their own words.  Where are these exorbitant salaries generated?  During the commercial breaks that these television personalities are tasked with leading you in and out of.

So, of course, a grain of salt is necessary when getting any information from these wealthy pundits.

In our modern day, however, there is a new realm in which we can find ourselves bamboozled by “facts” and the gatekeepers that control them.  I’m speaking, of course, about the internet – a place whose ideas about free speech certainly don’t line up with the reality on the ground.

While most of the discussion about internet censorship and far-left fascism revolve around entities such as Facebook and Google, a new tidbit of information has Wikipedia coming under fire as well.

A report in Huffington Post recently revealed the case of Wikipedia editor Ed Sussman, who was paid by media clients such as NBC and Axios to help diminish critical material. Paid editors operating in a similar manner to Sussman have worked on behalf of CNN contributor Hilary Rosen and the CEOs of Reddit and Intel, among other clients.

Other conduct by Sussman not covered by the Huffington Post shows him authoring fluff pieces for NBC executives and getting his proposed changes approved by another paid Wikipedia editor.

Just how sleazy are the adjustments?

In one example Feinberg cited, Sussman requested changes to the page of Axios journalist Jonathan Swan regarding a false report he made last September claiming Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was resigning. A line noting the incident in Swan’s article was replaced with a paragraph hyping that Swan was “the first to report” Rosenstein’s offer to resign, despite the offer being refused. Sussman backed this spin with a New York Timesarticle treating the incident as a failure of the Axios reporting model, a fact not mentioned in Sussman’s proposed edit.

Many of Sussman’s approved changes to the pages of his clients engaged in this subtle spin and cherry-picking. Changes to the NBC News page defended the network’s refusal to air Ronan Farrow’s story, subsequently published by The New Yorker, on the sexual assault allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, despite the very sources citedbeing more critical and Farrow’s own criticism of the network’s refusal to air the story. Feinberg identifies similar spin in Sussman’s portrayal of NBC’s handling of sexual assault allegations against the network’s own Matt Lauer.

In the wake of scandals such as the Russian collusion conspiracy theory, the media has paid a heavy price in both dignity and reputation.

Now, it look as though a reckoning may be coming for the internet’s free-speech Gestapo as well.

WATCH: Sitting Dem Senator Threatens to Punch Trump In the Face, Then Calls for Peace

Another Democrat advocating for violence…

Dems love to say President Trump’s “rhetoric” leads to harm. Yet, they have no problem saying they literally want to physically assault the most powerful man on the planet. Where’s the logic? Can liberals even spell “hypocrisy?” From Daily Caller: Montana Democratic Sen. Jon Tester said Thursday the best way for Democrats to beat President Trump in 2020 is to “go back and punch him in the face” in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Tester noted, “I don’t think, even in states where Donald Trump won big, that it did you any good running away from Donald Trump. I think you need to go back and punch him in the face. The truth is this guy is bad for this country.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=QDztkBropAI Democrats truly believe the words they say and have no comprehension of the term “irony.” Liberal rhetoric has greatly harmed Americans for a long, long while now, yet they have the gall to slam President Trump for speaking the truth. Insane. WATCH: https://twitter.com/CNNPolitics/status/1151906656487391233?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1151906656487391233&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-ocasio-cortez-says-trump-is-putting-people-in-danger-with-his-violent-rhetoric%2F Montel Williams is allowed to get away with calling for violence against, well, anyone, simply because he’s not a fan of President Trump. It’s that simple. Democrats and the mainstream media will look the other way on anything so long as you disagree with Trump on everything. Check out the tweet Montel sent, which he of course deleted: Really? Calling for cops to tase a conservative white woman, huh?

CONFIRMED: Trump Is Raising More Money In California Than ALL 2020 Dems – Except Two

HAHAHAHA! Excellent.

Here’s a story you won’t see ANYWHERE but on conservative websites. And there’s a good reason for it. President Trump is raking in more cash in the Golden State than all but two 2020 Dems. Go figure, huh? From CalMatters: This may come as surprise to the president, the national media and more than a few Californians, but there are plenty of Trump supporters in the “Resistance State,” too. And since the beginning of the year, they’ve been spending a lot of money to keep the president in the White House. New campaign finance statistics show that President Donald Trump raised $3.2 million—more money from the California donor class than all of his Democratic challengers, but two. Not only that, but the Trump campaign collected more from itemized small donors—those who gave in increments of less than $100 at a time—than anyone else in the field. The president bested even Democratic contender Bernie Sanders in the small-donor sweepstakes.
