Big Tech has fused with the fake news mainstream media.
That became clear as day during the 2020 election when damaging stories about Hunter Biden were censored on social media.
Now Wikipedia smeared one journalist with an absurd label.
The Left have taken over legacy institutions, and the result is that they rely on these institutions to operate as gatekeepers and fact-checkers against counter-narrative voices.
For example, supposed fact-checking sites like Snopes and Politifact back up their biased claims with references to corporate press news outlets.
Wikipedia is close to becoming one of those institutions with assumed credibility.
Even though most people acknowledge that Wikipedia is not reliable, it is still considered a go-to source for quick information on a subject or person.
So when Wikipedia contains erroneous information on a person, it creates a negative first impression and biases online users.
That’s what leftists are attempting to do to liberal independent journalist Glenn Greenwald.
His Wikipedia page was edited to say that Greenwald is “far-right,” which is an absurd characterization.
Wikipedia defines Glenn Greenwald as a “far-right American journalist”. So anyone who disobeys progressive orthodoxy in any capacity, irrespective of their contributions to the Left, is now automatically defined as “far-right”. pic.twitter.com/deqNeXWWUX

Greenwald is a progressive who simply will not bend the knee to the deep state like so many other leftists have done.
Greenwald left the far-left UK Guardian to found The Intercept, another left-wing outlet.
He was forced out of the platform he created because he refused to bite his tongue about Joe Biden corruption during the run-up to the 2020 election.
Greenwald has also appeared frequently on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show to oppose military intervention and the surveillance state.
Progressives used to champion these causes until those institutions were used against Donald Trump.
Not only is Greenwald not “far-right,” he’s not right wing at all.
But so many of the Left have chosen to go along with the insane power grabs of the Democratic Party while turning a blind eye to obvious media corruption.
Greenwald has not changed his stance on these issues, but since the Left have dragged “the middle” wildly leftward, he is labeled as a right-winger.
Democrats continue their slide to the fringes.
