Over at News Real Blog, David Swindle examines the Wikipedia biographies of …Brigitte Gabriel, Pamela Geller, Daniel Pipes and me, and finds — surprise of surprises! — that they’re relentlessly biased in order to give readers a negative impression of all of us.
I’ve written about this before, and it seems worse than ever now. There appears to be a group of people who have become Wikipedia administrators who hover over the bios of enemies of the Left and Islamic supremacism, “correcting” within seconds any changes to the bias and outright defamation that fill these bios now.
Check out Swindle’s piece — you’ll see in the bios Ibrahim “Honest Ibe” Hooper of Hamas-linked CAIR and Saudi-funded pseudo-academic John Esposito cited as objective authorities. You’ll find in my bio Karen Armstrong’s criticism cited, but not even a mention of my point-by-point rebuttal of her claims.
Then, just for fun, go consult the Wikipedia bios of people like Reza Aslan of the Islamic regime apologist group NIAC, Esposito and Hooper. You’ll see immediately the total absence of the lengthy “criticism” sections, which are supposedly designed to give the reader an objective view, that are so prominent in the bios of anti-jihadists. Now, why is that, exactly?
