All through high school, teachers warned us that when we were writing research papers, we could not use Wikipedia because it was not completely;y accurate. It could be influenced or added to, and in some cases, the facts changed.
So when my mother sent me a Wikipedia link over the weekend trashing Rep. Marjorie Green, I explained to her that it was not a trustworthy site and not to take it to heart.
Then Monday, I read how the Wikipedia editors also lied about the facts of the Capitol riot on January 6. They are skewing the truth and labeled it a “coup” attempt. They also misrepresented the 2020 election fraud allegations and numerous editors have been banned due to their comments calling out the website’s bias.
If nothing else, this year has taught us that the site is left leaning and does not care about truth.
Many Wikipedia editors have also pushed for other inflammatory characterizations of Trump’s election challenges and the Capitol protests and riot, though the worst characterizations have generally not been presented as fact due to intensely divided discussions.
Disputes over how to characterize the Capitol riot were the first battle on Wikipedia about the subject, a battle which began as the Capitol storming occurred and in its immediate aftermath. Initially, the article referred to the event as a Trump rally before the page was retitled to call them “protests” and then settling on “2021 storming of the United States Capitol” as the current title. Several editors had created articles on the event within the same hour. One referred to it as a “coup d’état attempt” and another called the protests “riots” in the title.
Characterization disputes over the Capitol storming continued beyond just disagreements over the article title. Editors have also categorized the page under “coup attempts” and added several navigation boxes listing it as one of several “coup attempts” at the bottom of the page. One editor even created a categoryspecifically for “coups d’état and coup attempts in the United States” to add to the page, though the category stretched the meaning to include coups in the territory of the modern United States, even when the coups preceded the existence of the country. When one editor tried to remove the coup categorizations, Travis Mason-Bushmann or “NorthBySouthBaranof” on Wikipedia, restored them.
