Yesterday on Sharyl Attkisson’s show Full Measure, Wikipediocracy’s own Greg Kohs explained how editors with an agenda warp and distort what readers see on the world’s most popular online encyclopedia.
April 17, 2016 — Right now, this very second, people are busily editing away on the website Wikipedia, at a rate of more than ten edits per second. There are over five million articles written in English on Wikipedia, with a thousand being added every day.

Another Wikipediocracy member, Mike Wood, explains how he was fired from his job for editing Wikipedia. “Do not step in front of the train, because they will run you over.”
This report is a short, but powerful and fascinating look at the not-so-public face of Wikipedia. It’s well worth watching.
