The name of the project, launched by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger in January 2001, is a portmanteau (combining of two words) of the Hawaiian word wiki (meaning quick) and encyclopaedia.

Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger has claimed that the online encyclopaedia can no longer be seen as a source of unbiased information because the project’s volunteers prefer to remove the news that is out of sync with their agenda.

When asked whether Wikipedia can be trusted, Sanger told the news website Unherd.com: “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”, the Wikipedia co-founder said.

He added that he subscribes to a view that “teams of Democratic-leaning volunteers” scrap content that is not up their alley, including information about scandals pertaining to US President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

In a separate interview with the Daily Mail, Sanger referred to an article about Biden on Wikipedia, which “if you look at it, has very little by way of the concerns that Republicans have had about him [POTUS]”.

He added that if users want “to have anything remotely resembling the Republican point of view about Biden”, they are “not going to get it from the article”.

He recalled the Wikipedia passage on the Bidens doesn’t include any mention of Hunter Biden allegedly receiving a whopping $600,000 per year to serve on the board of the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma from 2014 until 2019.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
