Wikipedia can no longer be trusted as a source of unbiased information since the online encyclopedia’s left-leaning volunteers cut out any news that doesn’t fit their agenda, according to the site’s co-founder.
Larry Sanger, 53, co-founded Wikipedia in 2001 alongside Jimmy Wales, said the crowdsourcing project has betrayed its original mission by reflecting the views of the ‘establishment.’
He said he agreed with the assessment that ‘teams of Democratic-leaning volunteers’ remove content that isn’t to their liking, including information about scandals linked to President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
When asked by Unherd.com if Wikipedia can be trusted, he replied: ‘You can trust it to give a reliably establishment point of view on pretty much everything.
‘Can you trust it to always give you the truth? Well, it depends on what you think the truth is.’
DailyMail.com has reached out to Wikipedia seeking comment.
Sanger cited the entry on Joe Biden, which he says is a sanitized version that doesn’t include arguments from a GOP perspective.
‘The Biden article, if you look at it, has very little by way of the concerns that Republicans have had about him,’ Sanger said.
‘So if you want to have anything remotely resembling the Republican point of view about Biden, you’re not going to get it from the article.
‘And there is a paragraph – and it is quite a long article so there should be at least a paragraph – about the Ukraine scandal.
‘Very little of that can be found in Wikipedia.’
Sanger added: ‘What little can be found is extremely biased and reads like a defense counsel’s brief, really.’
