Editors at Far Left Wikipedia Paid to Protect Political, Tech and Media Figures
Since 2016 there has been an organized effort to smear conservative pundits and publishers on Wikipedia.
It is impossible to make changes on these Wiki pages once the far left sets out to destroy a person on organization’s reputation. This is due to the fact that Wikipedia is consumed by dishonest liberal editors.
And since 2016 Facebook and Google started colluding with Wikipedia to use their descriptions on their platforms.
This is despite Wikipedia’s public disclaimer that “Wikipedia is not a reliable source.”
This collusion against conservative websites and personalities takes a toll. Meanwhile, fake news organizations that pushed the Russian conspiracy hoax for over two years are rated as credible news sources. And then these same so-called news organizations on the left use “unreliable” Wikipedia to define their enemies on the right. The Gateway Pundit is a victim of this despicable practice despite the fact that our reporting is more accurate than The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC.
The Gateway Pundit team agrees with Paul Sperry.
No, no, no. You didn't report facts. You reported SPECULATION, endless SPECULATION. And the few "facts" you reported were merely unsubstantiated rumors spoon-fed to you by your correspondents' ex-colleagues at Fusion GPS. Funny how you never disclosed Evan Perez's ties to Fusion https://t.co/voXStwSNec

A Wikipedia editor was caught being paid by media clients like NBC and Axios to diminish critical material on their Wiki entries.
A report in Huffington Post recently revealed the case of Wikipedia editor Ed Sussman, who was paid by media clients such as NBC and Axios to help diminish critical material. Paid editors operating in a similar manner to Sussman have worked on behalf of CNN contributor Hilary Rosen and the CEOs of Reddit and Intel, among other clients.
Other conduct by Sussman not covered by the Huffington Post shows him authoring fluff pieces for NBC executives and getting his proposed changes approved by another paid Wikipedia editor.
The report by Ashley Feinberg detailed former journalist Ed Sussman’s work as a paid Wikipedia fixer for clients such as Axios, NBC, and Facebook. Sussman did this work through the firm WhiteHatWiki, which he argues follows Wikipedia policies. Sussman disclosed his paid editing on Wikipedia and ostensibly worked within the rules by having other editors approve proposed changes.
