Woke Wikipedia users were quick to recall Twitter’s decision to briefly suspend a number of liberal journalists the company said were violating its terms of service.
In an article calling the event the “Thursday Night Twitter Massacre,” Wikipedia described the decision to briefly suspend journalists after they shared information related to the flight coordinates of owner Elon Musk’s private jet.
“The term ‘Thursday Night Massacre’ was not intended to be editorialized, but was a term that circulated on Twitter after the incident and was used by several journalists to describe the event afterwards,” said page author Hunter Kahn, explaining his . the decision on the Wikipedia backend “talk page”.
Other Wikipedia editors disagreed, saying the use of the word massacre was exaggerated.
“This seems like a rather noisy retelling of events that only gets attention because it happened to the people writing the papers,” suggested another editor of the site in an unsigned comment.
Like Twitter before the Musk takeover, Wikipedia has long been accused by critics of an implicit left-wing bias. Larry Sanger, co-founder of the website, warned that the website cannot be trusted today and has become “propaganda” for the left-wing “establishment”.
“There’s a big, nasty, complicated game going on behind the scenes to make an article say what somebody wants them to say,” Sanger said last year.
In April, Wikipedia editors removed their entry for Rosemont Seneca Partners, Hunter Biden’s infamous investment firm, as “not noteworthy.”
