How Wikipedia Lies

If Wikipedia is the best that ‘the market’ can come up with for ‘a free press’ in a ‘democracy’, then democracy isn’t at all possible.

Did you know that Vice President Dick Cheney admitted that on 11 September 2001 he, as President George W. Bush’s brief stand-in during the 9/11 attacks that hit the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, issued an order (and it was carried out) to shoot down United Airlines Flight 93 while it was in the air near Pittsburgh? If what he said at the time was true, then the standard ‘historical’ account of the plane’s having been brought down as a result of action by the passengers, would be concocted, not history at all.

Here is the video-clip of V.P. Cheney on 9/11, making this claim and explaining why he gave that order:

The Wikipedia article on Flight 93 provides the standard account, and fails even so much as just to mention the Vice President’a assertion and explanation that he provided on national TV at the…

  1. I have dealt with spooks. I went to richland for a job. It is by hanford. I was playing blackjack, at a casino. I had a tie-dye tea shirt on. Two asses joined my table. It was just us 3. They said i was probably the kinda guy, who liked Michael moore. This was in 2004. Full tilt bush-shit! I had been paying a lot of attention to Michael Moore on-line, at the time. I got up to leave and the frikin spooks, said they would be seein me around, and used my last name, as i left.

    That is how frikin awful, this country is. That is the awful truth, as michael moore would have said back then! Our ugly shithole country, spends 200 billion a year, to spy on us, lie to us, brainwash, intimidate, torture us, probly do bdily harm. Pure evil. I do not even trust michael moore anymore.

    • I used to live in Seattle, Doug, and I can imagine Richland was full of spooks keeping the Hanford workers and downwinders in line when they were organizing to protest being poisoned by nuclear radiation. Hanford is still a high security Dept of Energy facility and journalists can be arrested simply for setting foot on the reservation.

      I don’t trust Michael Moore any more, either – not since he started lobbying people to vote for the Democratic Party.

      • Anyone who has lived in seattle and washington, knows how duplicitous and evil , the nwo democrats in washington are. Politicians like murray and cantwell are demonic liars, and corrupt theives. If u are poor and a naturalized citizen, in washington, u are screwed. It was one of the hearts of the 2008 ,housing debacle. I am antinuclear, because my family lived by hanford . Most OF my family, is dead from cancer. Washington is the most corporate totalitarian state, i have ever been in. Bill gates and its ilk are the worst creeps in the universe.

  2. It’s a stinky mess; this 9/11 scenario.

    Seriously though, it’s far better to make heroes out of the passengers, than to show how monstrous the “man in charge” can be against his own citizenry.
    Some would debate that there really weren’t any passengers, or planes, or… well, there’s been a whole lot said, that’s for sure.

    • YES, gerry it DOES matter. The LA Times article you posted does show that the 9/11 commission was full of shit but no surprise there.

      As Tubularsock has repeated many times:

      9/11 WAS NOT AN INSIDE JOB
      IT WAS AN OUTSOURCED JOB

      THE U.S. ALWAYS OUTSOURCES
      IT’S TERRORIST ACTIVITIES!

      Cheers.

  3. PERHAPS WIKIPEDIA IS A PUPPET OF SORTS AS WELL. IT IS NOT WRITTEN TO DIG INTO THE RABBIT HOLE, IT IS MORE DESIGNED TO GIVE A FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY IN THE WAY HISTORY AND OTHER FACTS ARE WRITTEN. WIKIPEDIA IS VERY SIMILAR TO MAINSTREAM, AND ONLY SELECT WHAT THEY WANT US TO KNOW. IF THEY EVER WROTE THE CORE HONEST TRUTH, YOU CAN BET THAT MANY OF US WOULD BE DANCING LIKE A BUNCH OF HOT TO TROT HOT PEPPERS, AND SWIMMING IN TABASCO SAUCE, AFTER NOT JUST SOME, BUT A PLANET OF FOLKS AND SPECIMENS. TAKE A REAL LOOK AT THE 9/11 FAMILY:

  4. Well, I’m not sure “the market” produced Wikipedia. Does anyone make any money out of it? It’s still my first “go-to” of choice. Of course, you need to check and question all sources – but if there’s anything better out there, please give me a link to it.

  5. To answer your first question, Jimmy Wales and Wikipedia’s editors and administrators (who are paid now) make truckloads of money. This article pretty much summarizes where Wikipedia gets their money from: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/12/20/cash_rich_wikipedia_chugging/

    Although technically anyone can register to post articles and/or edit Wikipedia articles, for at least 10 years now any volunteers who post information contrary to the CIA/State Dept official line (as Zeuss points out in his article) find that administrators delete or alter the information. In 2007 a computer tracing program found that a large number of Wikipedia edits were made on FBI/CIA computers.

    There are loads of alternatives to Wikipedia. Below are some of them.
