How many of you use Wikipedia as a source, or at least as a verification of a source?
I know I sure DID. Please note the emphasis on "DID"!
I know... I know... Wiki is "unreliable" because they allow just about anyone to edit posts. That used to not be such a bad thing, but now?
That brings us to "Mr. Phillip Cross"...
"Mr. Cross" is not some random guy with too much time on his hands and a strong desire to share his "wisdom"... nope. What 'ol Phil is is a concerted, corporately sanctioned, multi-multi-multi-person effort to twist the narrative in regards to being pro-right wing, pro-Israel and anti-anyone who isn't pro-right-wing/Israel.
How do I know this? (jump to the last paragraphs if you know this stuff already)
According to Craig Murray, "a British diplomat turned political activist, human rights campaigner, blogger and whistleblower" (according to Wiki... LOL):
“Philip Cross” has not had one single day off from editing Wikipedia in almost five years. “He” has edited every single day from 29 August 2013 to 14 May 2018. Including five Christmas Days. That’s 1,721 consecutive days of editing.
133,612 edits to Wikpedia have been made in the name of “Philip Cross” over 14 years. That’s over 30 edits per day, seven days a week. And I do not use that figuratively: Wikipedia edits are timed, and if you plot them, the timecard for “Philip Cross’s” Wikipedia activity is astonishing is astonishing if it is one individual:
...the purpose of the “Philip Cross” operation is systematically to attack and undermine the reputations of those who are prominent in challenging the dominant corporate and state media narrative. particularly in foreign affairs. “Philip Cross” also systematically seeks to burnish the reputations of mainstream media journalists and other figures who are particularly prominent in pushing neo-con propaganda and in promoting the interests of Israel."
So exactly what is it that "Phil" is "editing" so diligently for years on end?
Well, that would be stuff like:
Oh, and if you think Craig Murray is "picking" on poor, "Phil"... IMO, he has a damn right to! As he said,
" “Philip Cross” has made 275 edits to my Wikipedia page. These include calling my wife a stripper, deleting my photo, removing my reply to attacks made on me by Kamm and Harding among others, and deleting my refusal of all honours while a British diplomat."
BUT HERE IS THE KICKER!
“Philip Cross”‘s political views are exactly the same as those of Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia.
Wales is rabidly pro-Israel and anti-Palestinian/Syria/Iran/anyone who disagrees with being pro-Israel/right-wing. In fact, he was recently quoted (during his 10th visit to Israel) as saying, "I’m a strong supporter of Israel" and has, additionally, vehemently argued in support of Israel's recent murderous actions against the Palestinians (usually repeating the standard Israeli government propaganda).
