Wikipedia Changes Definition of ‘Recession,’ Locks Page from Editing

'Even if that number is negative, we are not in a recession now, and I would, you know, warn that we should be not characterizing that as a recession...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) As the Biden administration desperately attempts to redefine the word “recession,” even Wikipedia is joining in the gaslighting effort, Breitbart reported.

After site administrators stealth-edited the entry, the Wikipedia page was locked to prevent further editing, conservative pundit Mike Cernovich observed.

The user-vetted online reference site has always been considered a controversial information source, but it was long considered to be politically neutral until leftist trolls waged an aggressive takeover and began to subvert its open-sourced editing structure into an elitist hierarchy.

Even Wikipedia cofounder Larry Sanger denounced its partisan bias in a 2020 blog post.

“Wikipedia no longer has an effective neutrality policy,” Sanger wrote. “… As a result, even as journalists turn to opinion and activism, Wikipedia now touts controversial points of view on politics, religion, and science.”

The culprit in the “recession” episode appeared to be a Wikipedia admin going by the name of “Anarchyte,” who promptly banned the IP address of a reporter when confronted about the bias in an online forum.

However, on a discussion page about it, the site went to great lenghts to rationalize its biased edits while using the same deceptive tactics as the Biden administration to deny having done so and citing other phony authorities, such as the far-left “fact-checking” site Snopes.

Wikipedia’s effort to distort reality was only the latest in a line of shameless displays by the Biden administration, which has attempted to redefine a litany of terms and ideas to fit its far-left agenda and political objectives.

By their own admission, the tanking economy is all part of the plan to force Americans to embrace a new “liberal world order.”

National Economic Council Director Brian Deese, for example, recently told Americans not to worry, because what they have traditionally understood to be a recession is actually just a transition, at least if it happens when Biden is in power.

“We’re certainly in a transition and we are seeing slowing as we all would’ve expected,” he told MSNBC on Thursday.

Even Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen got in on the fun.

“I look at all the data, and GDP will be closely watched,” Yellen said.

“But I do want to emphasize: what a recession really means is a broad-based contraction in the economy,” she continued. “And even if that number is negative, we are not in a recession now, and I would, you know, warn that we should be not characterizing that as a recession.”

Things came to a head earlier in the week when Fox News’s Peter Doocy grilled White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the state of the economy.
