Arthur Godfrey was the most popular man in America in the 1950s. You’ve heard of Arthur Godfrey, right, Miranda? Reputedly, he was asked to record a post-nuclear war public service announcement because his voice was so well know and it was thought that hearing it would help instill order.
Gamaliel vs Wikipedia Correction Project — Emmy-award winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who had been CBS’ D.C.-based investigative journalist and a substitute anchor for CBS Evening News before falling out of the grace of the network’s leftist overseers because she dared question activities of the Obama Administration, is battling Wikipedia.
Wikipedia, she says, refuses to correct biographical information even when demonstrably shown to be false. She has started the Wikipedia Correction Project (WCP) to fix things.
This has angered a Wikipedia editor who who tweets with the Biblical handle Gamaliel, and apparently edits with an agenda.
Fascinating to watch small-time grifters attempt to demonize/monetize @Wikipedia in the same way more successful grifters like Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin have done with the media, Gamaliel tweeted about the proven and trusted Ms. Attkisson.
Fuck off and die, the intellectual, fair and neutral Gamaliel tweeted about Mike Pence’s praise of Martin Luther King Jr.
I think we can safely say that Wikipedia, at least with regard to edits made by Gamaliel, is not a fair and trustworthy source, and that his namesake would not be impressed.
By the way, another way to have fun with Wikipedia is to sign up for Dissenter and edit Wikipedia articles that way. Granted only other Dissenter users can see the edits but there are more Dissenters every day.
