An independent journalist just exposed Wikipedia for allowing Biden entries to be manipulated.
A new report revealed Wikipedia’s permissive role in the concerted effort to protect President Joe Biden by blocking Americans from reading politically-negative information tied to his embattled son. According to data entries reviewed by independent journalist Lee Fang, Wikipedia allowed special consultants “hired” by Hunter Biden to manipulate the “Hunter Biden” page with “stealth edits.” Wikipedia, a site funded by leftist billionaire George Soros, seemingly stood idly by as entries tying Hunter to damning bribery scandals were edited “without any fingerprints.”
As reported by Fang, Hunter ordered FTI Consulting, a crisis management public relations firm, in 2014 to help him and his dad save face by keeping Americans from accessing the Bidens’ ties to shady business dealings on Wikipedia. In one email, Hunter advised Ryan Toohey, then an advisor at FTI, that Eric Schwerin, a business partner of the Bidens, would be making “additional edits.” According to Fang, “Toohey, emails from Hunter’s laptop show, confirmed that his company would get to work.”
According to Fang, Hunter also inexplicably pushed to delete the ties between the CIA and the National Endowment for Democracy, a company he worked for, highlighting instead his board memberships at non-profits. Shortly thereafter, countless anonymous users in Wikipedia followed suit and proceeded to “airbrush” negative references on Hunter’s page.
MRC Free Speech America reached out to Toohey inquiring whether Wikipedia or President Biden were aware of the alleged manipulation but did not receive a response prior to publication.
While it is not immediately clear whether Wikipedia played an active role in the alleged effort to protect the Bidens, the infamous online user-generated encyclopedia has been known for its peddling of leftist ideology.
Since 2020, Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger has blasted Wikipedia for its peddling of leftist propaganda. In a 2021 interview, Sanger blasted Wikipedia for protecting President Biden by withholding negative information. “The Biden article, if you look at it, has very little by way of the concerns that Republicans have had about him,” Sanger said at the time, in reference to Biden's Wikipedia page.
Notably, Wikipedia unleashed an “LGBTQ Grooming Conspiracy Theory” page in January 2023, associating conservative concerns with gender indoctrination to conspiratorial ideas. Similarly, Wikipedia protected the Biden regime’s disastrous economy by allowing at least 116 edits to the “recession” page.
