Wikipedia Changes Definition of Recession Then LOCKS Page


Wikipedia is a place where the majority of Americans go to find quick answers, the only problem is the site is controlled by various users who are mostly democrat operatives.

Just days after the Biden admin decided to change the definition of recession, Wikipedia was quick to change its definition of recession too.

After Wikipedia changed the definition of recession the site then locked the page in order to prevent other users from changing the definition of recession back to the previous definition.

Instead of fixing the crumbling economy, it appears easier for the Biden regime to just create a new definition.

Newsweek had these details to add:

A furious editing war broke out on the Wikipedia page for “recession” after Biden administration officials played down figures showing the United States had entered an unofficial recession following two quarters of negative economic growth.

The page is currently locked so only “established, registered users” can make changes with anyone else having to suggest edits for approval.

On Thursday, figures from the Commerce Department revealed U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) fell by an annualized rate of 0.9 percent during the second quarter of 2022. This follows negative growth in the first quarter with an annualized rate of 1.6 percent.

Two consecutive quarters of decreasing GDP, which measures all the goods and services a country produces, is traditionally defined as a recession. However, key figures within the Biden administration avoided using the word “recession” both before and after the latest figures came out.

In a statement released after the Commerce Department announcement, President Joe Biden said that America remains “on the right path” and “will come through this transition stronger and more secure.”

Defending his economic record Biden said: “Coming off of last year’s historic economic growth, and regaining all the private sector jobs lost during the pandemic crisis, it’s no surprise that the economy is slowing down as the Federal Reserve acts to bring down inflation. But even as we face historic global challenges, we are on the right path and we will come through this transition stronger and more secure.”

The statement infuriated House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Addressing Biden from the House he commented: “You would rather redefine a recession than restore a healthy economy.”

The move by Wikipedia even caught Elon Musk’s attention.

The New York Post had more on the story:

Elon Musk hit out at Wikipedia on Friday for “losing its objectivity” after the online encyclopedia blocked users from editing its “recession” page — prompting accusations that it was running cover for the Biden administration.

Musk, the Tesla CEO and the world’s richest person with an estimated net worth of $263 billion, tagged Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales in a tweet on Friday.

“Wikipedia is losing its objectivity,” Musk tweeted.

Wikipedia blocked users from revising its “recession” page after visitors to the site engaged in a frantic editing war over the definition of the term, which is being disputed by the Biden administration following the latest economic data showing a drop in GDP.
