“I No Longer Trust The Website I Created”: Wikipedia Co-Founder

Date:

Information is key; and currently, the world is facing a war on information more than ever before. The globalists have infiltrated every form of information network from news media to informative search sites, including Wikipedia; the online ‘encyclopaedia britannica’ as some would tag it. So much that its co-founder no longer trust the website he created.

Ranking in the fifth position of the world’s largest websites, pulling in an estimated 6.1 billion followers per month; it also serves as a cheat sheet for almost any topic in the world. It is the biggest and “most read reference work in history”, with as many as 56 million editions.

Users with CIA and FBI computers have edited entries in this online encyclopaedia Wikipedia over the years on topics like the Iraq war and the Guantanamo prison. These changes may likely violate Wikipedia’s conflict-of-interest guidelines.

The WikiScanner program was developed by Virgil Griffith of the Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico and posted this month on a Web site that was swiftly overwhelmed with search queries.The WikiScanner program allows users to track the source of computers that are used to make changes to the popular encyclopaedia, where anyone can submit and edit entries and the program revealed that CIA computers were used to edit an entry on the U.S. led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

A graphic on casualties was edited to add that many figures were estimated and were not broken down by class. Computers from other organisations and companies were also found to have been used in editing articles related to these topics and several others.

Where then is the right source for information? Is there even such a thing as right source anymore? These questions weigh heavily on many hearts including that of the co-founder of Wikipedia who said he doesn’t even trust the website that he himself created.
