Wikipedia: A Disinformation Operation?

from Swiss Propaganda Research

Wikipedia is generally thought of as an open, transparent, and mostly reliable online encyclopedia. Yet upon closer inspection, this turns out not to be the case.

In fact, the English Wikipedia with its 9 billion page views per month is governed by just 500 active administrators, whose real identity in many cases remains unknown.

Moreover, studies have shown that 80% of all Wikipedia content is written by just 1% of all Wikipedia editors, which again amounts to just a few hundred mostly unknown people.

Obviously, such a non-transparent and hierarchical structure is susceptible to corruption and manipulation, the notorious “paid editors” hired by corporations being just one example.

Indeed, already in 2007, researchers found that CIA and FBI employees were editing Wikipedia articles on controversial topics including the Iraq war and the Guantanamo military prison.

Also in 2007, researchers found that one of the most active and influential English Wikipedia administrators, called “Slim Virgin”, was in fact a former British intelligence informer.

More recently, another highly prolific Wikipedia editor going by the false name of “Philip Cross” turned out to be linked to UK intelligence as well as several mainstream media journalists.

In Germany, one of the most aggressive Wikipedia editors was exposed, after a two-year legal battle, as a political operative formerly serving in the Israeli army as a foreign volunteer.

Even in Switzerland, unidentified government employees were caught whitewashing Wikipedia entries about the Swiss secret service just prior to a public referendum about the agency.

Many of these Wikipedia personae are editing articles almost all day and every day, indicating that they are either highly dedicated individuals, or in fact, operated by a group of people.

In addition, articles edited by these personae cannot easily be revised, since the above-mentioned administrators can always revert changes or simply block disagreeing users altogether.

The primary goal of these covert campaigns appears to be pushing Western and Israeli government positions while destroying the reputation of independent journalists and politicians.

Articles most affected by this kind of manipulation include political, geopolitical and certain historical topics as well as biographies of non-conformist academics, journalists, and politicians.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, a friend of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and a “Young Leader” of the Davos forum, has repeatedly defended these operations.

Speaking of Davos, Wikimedia has itself amassed a fortune of more than $160 million, donated in large part not by lazy students, but by major US corporations and influential foundations.

Moreover, US social media and video platforms are increasingly referring to Wikipedia to frame or combat “controversial” topics. The revelations discussed above may perhaps help explain why.

To add at least some degree of transparency, German researchers have developed a free web browser tool called WikiWho that lets readers color code just who edited what in Wikipedia.

In many cases, the result looks as discomforting as one might expect.

It is obvious that Israel would be in there lying about their multiple assassinations, genocide and war crimes in the last 75+ years.

Petra Liverani

I love Wikipedia for people psyops. It always gives you the clues.

  • Chelsea Manning, alleged whistleblower
  • Adrian Lamo, alleged aider of Chelsea
  • Marie Colvin, alleged journalist
  • Dr David Kelly (bioweapons), allegedly suicided (though some think killed), however, could easily have been sheepdipped (given a new identity and sent elsewhere)
  • Mordechai Vanunu, alleged leaker of Israeli nuclear weapons secrets
  • Assassinated Iranian alleged nuclear physicists
  • Bill Kaysing, seeming first exposer of alleged moon hoax (but really just a windup plant for those who disbelieve everything from authorities to encourage them in their disbelief of the genuine moon landings so they will be derided for their attempts at exposing real conspiracies such as 9/11 – a kind of creation of the Boy-Who-Cried-Wolf
  • psyop)

I’ve been a Wikipedia editor for many years, editing under numerous guises. I first fell out of favour with ‘the project’ when I came up against and editor who was hell-bent on removing all references to “British Isles” from the encyclopedia. He was eventually stopped in his tracks, but not before an enormous amount of collateral damage. I now edit mostly as what they describe as ‘an IP editor’. This has demonstrated to me one of the worst aspects of Wikipedia: a complete disregard for one of the founding principles, that “anyone can edit Wikipedia”, or as Jimmy Wales says, “you can edit this page right now!” No you can’t. At least, not if it’s a page that’s in any way important. Most major articles are now permanently protected from IP editors, usually by bum administrators with an agenda of making the project an account-only entity. They protect an article on the strength of ‘persistent vandalism’, but rather than limiting protection to a week, a month, or even a year, they permanently protect it. It’s sickening, and it allows ‘the cabal’ to carry on regardless with their propaganda, intolerance and biases. Have a look at the articles on Climate Change, Holocaust Denial, the IRA, or anything to do with Israel or the Arab-Israeli conflict. In these, and many other, areas the NPOV principle has been quietly abandoned in favour of the agenda of ‘the cabal’. The project has become a massive bureaucracy, with inordinate time spent on what they call ‘sockpuppet investigations’ (it’s easy to be a successful sockpuppet). Most admins don’t contribute to the project. Rather, they are busy-bodies who just like to boss other people around. Apparently, one of the worst examples of Wiki malpractice is the Global Warmimg article (permanently protected, of course). I understand that eminent experts in the field have been dismissed and banned from editing simply because they fall foul of the cabal’s agenda.

What to do about Wikipedia? I don’t know. Its tentacles have slithered into just about everything online. There seems no stopping it. I still edit it. Why? Because it’s addictive. And that’s another problem with it.

I think the only thing you can do – and encourage others to do – is always to check the references and try a few other sites as well i.e. cross reference. I sometimes go to Powerbase and Wikispooks – although every site I visit usually throws up some bias or other and, if you note those, you ought to be able to piece together a more credible picture than otherwise.

Let’s just not forget that there are plenty of non-controversial topics out there, and if you want some details about when Copernicus was born and the political circumstances of his time, Wikipedia will do nicely for a quick look.
I don’t think anybody in their right mind would turn to Wp for information on The Guardian or the BBC…

Anthony North

Nothing surprising in this. I’d be surprised if it wasn’t manipulated. I go by a simple philosophy: there’s only one truth – there isn’t one. But you’ve not mentioned the main area of manipulation – culture itself. As a case in point, one of my interests concerns the unexplained, where I do not debunk, but attempt rational explanation. Culture dictates scepticism on such subjects throughout Wiki. How about you lot? Atlantis, Loch Ness Monster, the Poltergeist.

Like you Anthony, I seek the essence of truth wherever I might find it. For this I have rules:
In assessing the truth of reports I use a couple of mantras:
• Always follow the money
• There is never such a thing as a coincidence.
• Never underestimate the evil of the powers that be
• Occam’s Razor

In March 2013 the Cyprus bank crisis turned out to be a test run for the ‘Bail-in’ process to protect banks during a future bank run. It had been modelled earlier. My book starts with the Cyprus event.

We know that the central banks know that the global economy was due to crash – all they needed was cover – follow the money. Even now, the WHO is resisting calling a ‘pandemic’ – I wonder why?

Steve Hayes

William Connolley, a member of the British Green Party and climate modeller, aggressively edited Wikipedia pages on global warming (more than five thousand) to push the Climate Change catastrophe narrative. Connolley claims to have a doctoral degree, although there is no evidence for this.

My guess is that it might be because you wrote: “ Connolley claims to have a doctoral degree, although there is no evidence for this“.

I don’t know of this person, but he’s apparently got a DPhil from St Edmund Hall at the University of Oxford.

Furthermore, to be Senior Scientific Officer in the British Antarctic Survey you’d need to be a PhD, they don’t just send anyone out there nor freely hand out senior titles.

Are you saying this is untrue? If so, on what basis?

The anthropogenic climate destabilisation catastrophe scenario deserves to be ventilated. The MSM and the various denialist disinformation sites certainly won’t-in fact they deny that the destabilisation is even happening, as climate and weather disasters grow rapidly. In fact the ‘catastrophe’ scenarios of various intensity from calamitous to Near Term Human Extinction are utterly unarguable, save with sophistry, casuistry and outright disinformation.

I invite other AAPA (awake and paying attention) people to join me in a comprehensive boycott of Wikideceivia. I make a point of NEVER consulting it, on any topic at all, on the principle that anything pulled from a toxic sewer is near-certain to be contaminated, however apparently non-controversial it may seem to be. And how would we ever be able to tell which stuff is sound and which is shite? It’s not as if scientists and academics have simply never been caught in intellectually-corrupt practices in recent times, is it?

On the same principle, I invariably refuse to accept Wikideceivia as an information-source offered by others. I hold to a variant of the famous motto (questionable grammar and all) ascribed to the Roman senator Cato the Elder:

Wikideceivia delenda est! (Wikideceivia must be destroyed!)

Have no truck with it on any excuse. When you swear a total, permanent shunning/boycott, you soon find, with little searching, that there are other sources of information. (Which may also be tainted, of course, but that’s just par for the course in the information-tsunami age. Caveat emptor applies at ALL times.)

You dson’t have to come up with cute but derogatory names for it. Just use a bit of common sense. I use Wikipedia for a lot of day to day information, most of it technical, some of it historical. All this can be described as ‘non-controversial’. I obviously tread very carefully should I look up contemporary topics – contested science, current affairs and politics — because they’re not only controversial but their veracity is usually a matter of opinion, which in this day and age is often ‘who can shout the loudest’.

You don’t condemn all books because a lot of what’s published is crap so why dump on this publishing medium?

Rhisiart Gwilym
Rhisiart Gwilym

Good luck with your dips into the cesspit, Martin. Scrub off well after each contamination! Check Amarka’s post below, and see whether you still think that JWales’s racket should get ANY patronage at all. Not by me. Not a chance. Patronise a CIA/zionist deception racket – on any topic at all? You can not be serious!

Wikideceivia, wikideceivia, wikideceivia delenda est!

Thinks: ‘Or would it be even more ‘cutesy’ to spell it Wikideceive-ya; just to make it dead clear even to the intellectually-challenged?’ :0)

…but I have just looked up the article on solar panels to check on the equivalent circuit or these devices. Its hardly a sewer of Zionist mis-information.

FWIW — Even the CIA even publishes useful summaries of things like the economic output of countries, information that’s useful for researchers that’s non-controverisal. You just need to know where the edge is likely to be and avoid that territory.

I stand by my decision: NEVER look at Wikideceivia. It’s a cesspit of deceit. Nothing it offers can ever be trusted. Good luck with sifting the – alleged – echt gold from the toxic turds. And it’s not as if all knowledge is shut away from us if we can’t use the JWales cesspit. Once known to be a liar, always suspect thereafter. There are plenty of other, less dishonoured sources.

‘To add at least some degree of transparency, German researchers have developed a free web browser tool called WikiWho that lets readers color code just who edited what in Wikipedia.’ – is there a version available for the Guardian, because it may well reveal the extent to which their geopolitical output is a direct transcript of intelligence community briefings?

Essential article by the way – proof, if proof were needed, that info’ wars are currently running at full tilt. In fact we have now reached a stage where any sizeable information entity (controlled by corporations) must be assumed to be tainted until proven otherwise.

The internet still tolerates plurality of opinion but what it won’t accept are informations streams that reach a wide audience without being filtered through various forms of censorship or psych-op.

I linked to this doc on the recent Skripal thread because it explains how any event linked to national security has no chance of being treated in a balanced or non-partisan way by the MSM (the film uses the invasion of Iraq as an exemplar).
For example, it depicts Colin Powell lying to the UN about WMDs while at home the chair of the Federal Communications Commission (who just happened to be Powell’s son, Michael) ignored accusations that America’s media watch-dog was failing in its duty to meaningfully interrogate the rationale for invasion put out by Bush and his Dad (from 59 minutes)

This is not just corruption but flagrent corruption – in other words the Michael Powells of this world can’t even be arsed to pretend that the system in place is anything other than a vehicle for a brutal corpocracy to do pretty much anything that it pleases. This article warns us that Wiki may well be a member of the same club.

Like everything on the internet a case of caveat emptor applies, whether it be a MSM article, a blog, a shop, Google, Wikipedia or even Off Guardian. 😉

If I am interested in a subject I always cross check as far as I can and if I am very interested I try to get all the way back to the original source. Of course, too many of us simply do not have the time let alone inclination.

But the article is correct, Wikipedia is grossly contaminated. It is a useful reference for general biographies (caveat emptor again, whether it is Wiki or a book), hard science and technology (except for some areas like climate ‘science’) but for anything that is relevant or in any way controversial it is always highly suspect.

Wikipedia is a crock of misinformation – it always has been. Adopt the large pinch of salt stance when reading and never rely on it for accuracy. Example:- Wiki page for a certain railway station (closed in the Beeching corruption era) has a photo claiming to be the station ….. it is a house next to the local village shop (also closed). A simple, non-life-threatening error …. but it is there for all to see. Wiki is an aid, that is all and much like the MSM, it is a propaganda tool. Nobody fact checks the fact checkers and if we choose to, we will allow the rewriting of history. Just look to google maps to find Palestine.
As for RationalWiki – what a manipulative pile of .

what a manipulative pile

“sceptic” forums in general, tend to be instinctive defenders of the Official Story. It would be interesting to understand the psychological processes in operation, wherein nonsensical “science” is used to support the most unscientific conclusions imaginable; the 9/11 event being, as always, a paradigmatic example.

Presumably, many of their inhabitants are on somebody’s payroll, with the usual consequences for understanding evidence and arguments that might get you removed from that payroll.

Gall

It’s almost synchronistic that you’d post this article after milosevic replied to a comment of mine seriously citing it as a valid “source” to “disprove” the overwhelming proof that 9/11 was a Nuclear Event . Maybe he works there as an editor in his spare time.

Why don’t you add some of your Hollywood favourites to ingratiate yourself ?

Of course, if you were serious you would want to discuss the contents of WTC7, more specifically … (apart from all the security agencies and inland revenue services), the SEC investigations into Enron, Monsanto, GEC, harmonised with BP/USD.o.D interests & HAARP and their engineering of the weather, bankrupting many US farmers in the process of experimenting and then moving in with GMO crops onto land plagued by an engineered successive years of drought, with drought resistant seed, whilst speculating with the first ever Weather Derivative Fund investments, on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange … all questions & subjects milosevic prefers to avoid, at any cost, eh milo. ? !

Just project & transfer onto others, shouting disinformation shill, quoting wikipedia & Hollywood, youtube & google, all controlled arenas of opposition, like Chomsky & MIT… c’mon milosevic, you can do better than this continual posting of the same ole’ clips. How about discussing the science of engineering the weather ? Loads of links exist for you, that are not from Hollywood or Wikipedia, just ask Eastlund, who invented HAARP …
And whatever you do, don’t ask Greta, see ? Way better me, coz’ there are things I know AND HAVE SEEN with my own eyes & heard with my own ears, that neither you nor Greta seem very keen to discuss, in reality ! No smoke without fire, eh, milo. ? 🙂 😉

‘Classy’ response, milosevic, lower class, naturally.
At least if I’m gonna’ do that, I’ll supply a link that refutes the
disinformation anybody like you or WHBonney may furnish.

So, to be perfectly clear: milosevic maintains that the weather cannot be and was never engineered, with cloud seeding and the micro-radio-wave heating of the ionosphere, (warping its’ form), purely figments of my imagination and of course, Lockheed Martin’s wild imagination before the Beijing Olympics in 2008 ! ?

Given that the Chinese Government & Scientists openly ADMIT working with Lockheed Martin & FIVE HUNDRED installations on the North Face of the Himalayas and RT & others reported on this, many years ago… Milosevic appears to be on the wrong side of proven science & history confirmed, including the history of Bernard Eastlund’s warnings made public and indeed the official 1997 US D.o.D. policy & military strategy to control the food supply and water, globally.

Has it ever occurred to milosevic, that we can’t all be disinformation. shills ?
I’ve read comments from Brian Steere, (Binra) elsewhere, in medical columns where he uses his real name >>> something he has never hidden … unlike,

Milosevic, on the other hand, who always without fail prefers pseudonyms,
rather like ‘reinertorheit’s abusive Ad-hom. & seems to have an agenda of denial of proven science, especially regarding Climate ! >>> So, Milo insists that HAARP is harmless and could not possibly be in anyway responsible for any elements of Climate Change … How wrong can you be milo ?
Keep it up, you pseudo-dissident,
evidence of your controlled opposition is mounting by the day !

Seeing as you seem to be a wikipedia-fan, below is the link to my godfather (who grandfather educated) on wikipedia … it doesn’t mention Uncle D.E.N.s work for NASA in the 70’s, so consider yourself better informed than any wikipedia fan, today … One of us is lying & it ain’t me, see ? Clearly, milosevic has an agenda of ‘Total Denial of any Geo-Engineering’ , even refuting what insiders must concede.
Why is this, let me see ? >>> likely, controlled opposition & shilling DISINFO. !!
Or plain ignorant of the science ? In your case milo. I find the latter almost impossible to believe, especially after my working for BP’s CEO directly, when we bought HAARP & ARCO oil & gas. You know very well who Bernard Eastlund is and likely you even understand what he was trying to warn against … The Chief Scientific Advisor to the M.o.D most certainly understood, my godfather, Uncle D.E.N. >>> open the link, if you dare: it’s clean 🙂 and if yer’ polite in your response, I’ll even tell you why he’s called D.E.N. & not David …

— still no comment about the radioactive elements commonly present inside smoke detectors, then.

A nearly universal feature of disinfo shills is that they can’t respond to arguments which would tend to refute their claims. That would require a revision to the script, and the agency budget apparently doesn’t allow for that — it’s the quantity of disinfo that counts, not the quality. Hence, idiotic claims that either nobody died at the WTC (Petra/Flaxgirl), or that the demolition was done with nuclear explosives.

Keep up the good work. Your CIA masters are counting on you.

You can find out whatever it is you’re supposed by the establishment to know about any given topic by looking at Wikipedia. ‘Nuff said!
