Wikipedia buries CNN scandal

This sort of thing is exactly why I put Infogalactic at the top of the priority list. Because we need a way of accurately preserving the history that SJWs are always trying to revise and rewrite:
CNN Blackmail Controversy Buried on Wikipedia with Help of Partisan Editors

Following CNN’s blackmail controversy, left-wing Wikipedia editors had the Wikipedia article on the incident removed and its contents buried at the bottom of a page on CNN controversies. Editors then proceeded to gut this article of roughly a third of its content about controversies at the network in the latest example of liberal bias at the online encyclopedia.

Roughly an hour after the article on CNN’s recent blackmail scandal was originally created, editor NorthBySouthBaranof started a discussion on having the article made into a redirect to a CNN controversies article with a small section about the incident. Baranof was previously one of the anti-GamerGate editors banned from edits about the ethics in games journalism controversy due to his aggressive agenda-driven editing.

Over the course of the discussion, 23 regular editors on the site expressed support for the move. Although a majority of editors supporting the move in the discussion have some history of editing in favor of progressive positions, most notable are a group of five (MrX, Volunteer Marek, Objective3000, Sagecandor, and ValarianB) who also participated in a discussion on deleting the article about President Trump sharing classified information on ISIS terrorist activities with Russia.
Standard operating procedure at the SJW-converged site. Rather like the BEA, which has retroactively eliminated the 2001 recession from the official GDP figures, SJW history reflects nothing more than their version of what it suits them now to claim happened then.

It's funny how they think Trump sharing intel about an enemy with a potential ally is controversial but CNN committing a crime is not.

Does Infogalactica have a Wikipedia page detailing the shenanigans at Wikipedia?

I second this idea. It would be useful to have an overview of revisionim at Wikipedia.

Indeed, Mao was the ultimate social constructionist. Like an American social justice jihadi, he believed that bad thoughts were the cause of bad realities. Like Hillary responding to the BLM massacre of Dallas policemen by saying, “We need to look more into implicit bias,” Mao demanded “thought reform.”

Getting into a regular habit of using infogalatic now, instead of the converged site. Also use IG News before Drudge.

"he believed that bad thoughts were the cause of bad realities."

He is right, consciousness bridges the is ought problem, with time and action (within reason of course). Bit of a problem when you don't have boundaries. Ignoring morality has effects on reality.

"Like an American social justice jihadi, he believed that bad thoughts were the cause of bad realities."

To be fair, they are the cause of bad actions, and actions are the incarnation of thought. The fact that this part is somewhat accurate is why it's so dangerous.

The best lie is almost entirely true.

Has President Trump got the pedos in the MSM running so scared they will tell any lie to try to oust him?

To be fair your full of BS. People have "bad thoughts" all the time and never act on them.

@8 tuberman, I have the InfoSextant extension installed. I do occasionally want the Wikipedia page for something (usually technical), so I load the page in incognito mode. Slightly more cumbersome, but generally this gives me what I want.

Vox, here's a new NBER paper showing that convergence decreases employee productivity:

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become a cornerstone of modern business practice, developing from a “why” in the 1960s to a “must” today. Early empirical evidence on both the demand and supply sides has largely confirmed CSR's efficacy. This paper combines theory with a large-scale natural field experiment to connect CSR to an important but often neglected behavior: employee misconduct and shirking. Through employing more than 3000 workers, we find that our usage of CSR increases employee misbehavior - 20% more employees act detrimentally toward our firm by shirking on their primary job duty when we introduce CSR. Complementary treatments suggest that “moral licensing” is at work, in that the “doing good” nature of CSR induces workers to misbehave on another dimension that hurts the firm. In this way, our data highlight a potential dark cloud of CSR, and serve to forewarn that such business practices should not be blindly applied.

Bad thoughts are *A* cause of evil, not *THE* cause.

Anonymous patrick kelly January 03, 2018 11:47 AM  

Bad thoughts are not even necessary for bad actions at the visceral, fight or flight level, although whether the action is good or bad is usually judged by the results, not on the basis of motivation.

Blogger Azure Amaranthine January 03, 2018 12:12 PM  

"To be fair your full of BS. People have "bad thoughts" all the time and never act on them."

To be fair, you're an idiot. One-off bad thoughts are one thing. Every time you think about something it's that much more likely that you'll do that thing. This is a well known thing, even if it weren't readily observable.

You can consider it from the angle of Biblical temptation as well. Continuous tempting makes one more likely to sin. Do they ever have to? No. But if they allow the temptation to continue, it becomes more and more likely that they will, especially in the absence of any counterbalances.

No one said they were the only cause, Aeoli. Yet, one could certainly say they are the cause most easily changed.

That is the main reason I loathe the entire "progressive" movement. Everything they do involves some variety or other of LYING.

Oddly enough, unlike Infogalactic there's no page on Cultural Marxism in Wikipedia.

But a search in Wikipedia using "Cultural Marxism" will turn up this under Frankfurt School:

" 'Cultural Marxism" in modern political parlance refers to a conspiracy theory which sees the Frankfurt School as part of an ongoing movement to take over and destroy Western society.[54][55][56][57] "

Read the whole section. It becomes very clear just how much Wikipedia is being used as a narrative shaping tool.

I use IG news IG tech, infog along with sending everyone there, for a long time now since IG Drudge doesnt even occur to me to bother with as I want to read more intelligent hard news not soft news about celebs and non stories.

CNN is a delightful burning failure; can you imagine the cord cutting and disgust over the new years "I dont know what kind of celebration"? People were talking about it, I couldn't believe it, I had to youtube what happened, appalling.

2017 Kathy Griffin is nauseating, she's done with over there, 2018 the blonde they installed is drunk with drunk Don Lemon kissing some gay guy, then colorado bong hits, smoking pot on live air! CNN openly live air has a swear bear problem, actively lies and I no longer know who is watching local/national tv, its utter trash and if stupid people loves trash here is you tv, booze, pot, reality tv, dont read a book, dont improve your life be stupid, fat and entertained.

CNN failing, flailing and being appalling was a Christmas gift to me, wikiedia lying burying stories all that only promises IG's success.

The pendulum will swing with a smash to legacy media, the young people are not going to tolerate deception anymore for paying to be lied to with these stupid cable tv bills, the silent gen and boomers may need the crutch of tv but young people can't stand it.

Perhaps they are setting themselves up to redpill large numbers of their users. I was redpilled during the Reagan Administration since I was studying economics at the time.

Listening to the instructors predicting the apocalypse because of Reaganomics, and learning that various Keynesian economic tools were totally unable to describe what was happening just outside the window (indeed, I discovered that Keynesian economics not only has no tools to understand Stagflation, in the Keynesian universe Stagflation can't even exist).

Of course, the standard answer to why theory wasn't matching observable reality was "Because: shut up" and low grades, so I learned to discount the theory but keep my observations to myself. I suppose I am still blue pilled about a number of things which I have no observational evidence to refute conventional wisdom, but I'm thinking that outside of the people who have become too heavily invested in their world view (or are insulated from the consequences, like the high ranking politicians, academics, bureaucrats and so on in their gated communities), the increasing divergence between official narratives and reality is going to pull more and more people away from the "narrative", and this may be what is driving the Progressives so visibly insane.

*Because* they live in a bubble where the results of their policies and ideas isn't allowed to penetrate, they truly do not understand why we "deplorables" are not accepting their wisdom and guidance. After all, everything is working out just fine for them, isn't it? So the development of movement resisting their machinations is both puzzling and wrong, and everything from Brexit to the Five Star movement in Italy to electing President Trump comes as such a complete surprise. And the more they try to sweep things under the rug, the greater the divergence and pushback is going to become.....
