Fox News EXCLUSIVE: Pedophiles Find a Home on Wikipedia

Lincolnish!!!

Fox News this morning exposed how Wikipedia and schools have combined to convince school children that pedophilia is not a bad thing.  If you can’t smell the sarcasm on that statement, you should stick around the blog and get to know me better.  Here’s the second paragraph of the article:

Chat room posts show a clear effort by pedophiles to use Wikipedia, which can be accessed unfiltered in public schools across the country, to further their agenda.

This is blatant scare tactics against one of the greatest innovations of the information age (Wikipedia).  I find two things wrong with this ONE sentence.

  1. “Chat room posts show a clear effort by pedophiles” – what does that mean?  I can find at least 3 or 4 chatroom posts that suggest just about anything.
  2. “can be accessed unfiltered in public schools across the country”  Do you know how many sites kids have access to where people can place their opinions?  This sentence implies that pedophiles are regularly modifying the entry on pedophilia (not true) and that children are regularly accessing the entry (I highly doubt it, do teachers often assign projects that require doing google searches for pedophilia?) and that a child smart enough to search on wikipedia for “pedophilia” would just readily believe some clown that says pedophilia is cool.

If anything Wikipedia is the ultimate way to stop opinionated people from biasing reference materials.  For anything to be considered “fact” on wikipedia, a vast majority of the editors must agree that it is fact.  This effort to slander one of the (inherently) least bias sources of information on the planet is ridiculous.  What I wrote up in the title of this post was ACTUALLY the title of the fox news report, fair and balanced.
