Twitter owner Elon Musk said that Wikipedia has a "non-trivial left-wing bias" after the encyclopedia site marked the article for the "Twitter Files" for deletion. 

Editors for the site wrote that the article is a "nothing event about another nothing event." 





"There's not really anything here. Even as a stub it suffers from being unsourced in some places and poorly sourced in others, suggesting a lack of notability," wrote an editor. "It also doesn't have a clearly defined topic. Is this about an investigation, or is this about a Substack article?"



They continue: "While the title suggests the former and the lede suggests the latter, the content of the article is actually about neither. There is no investigation, and the article lacks any notable information about what the self-published article had to offer."

Musk noted in his tweet that Wikipedia requires the citation of biased "MSM sources" to "confirm" claims. 

This is not the first time that Wikipedia has apparently worked to protect the Biden regime. 

This past summer, Wikipedia changed the definition of "recession" on their site to fit the definition given by the Biden White House. Wikipedia then locked the page, preventing people from updating the website.

The White House redefined the definition of "Recession" ahead of the summer economic report, which showed that the US had suffered from two consecutive quarters of declining GDP. This was the standard definition, but the White House declared that the definition should be tied more closely to unemployment numbers.



On the Wiki page that provides the definition of a "recession," a message pops up when an attempt is made to edit the information, reading: "This page is protected to prevent vandalism."

Larry Sanger, the co-founder of Wikipedia, has been vocal in criticizing his creation, saying that it is run by left-leaning editors and that the site is no longer trustworthy.

Sanger said that he believes the site is run by teams of Democratic-leaning editors, and that the site lost its neutral nature in 2009. He named topics such as Covid and Hunter Biden as examples of Wikipedia's bias.

"There are a lot of people who would be highly motivated to go in and make the article more politically neutral but they’re not allowed to," Sanger said. He added, "If only one version of the facts is allowed then that gives a huge incentive to wealthy and powerful people to seize control of things like Wikipedia in order to shore up their power. And they do that."
