Wikinews has learned that a United States Department of Justice (DOJ) IP Address has been blocked on Wikipedia after making edits to an article which were considered "vandalism". In two separate instances, the IP address from the DOJ removed information from the Wikipedia article about the organization Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), regarding an attempt by the organization to secretly gain influence on the site.
On April 21 the Electronic Intifada, a not-for-profit online publication which covers the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict from a Palestinian perspective, published an article describing efforts by CAMERA [Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America] to secretly influence Wikipedia articles. According to the article, Electronic Intifada obtained a series of emails between CAMERA and members of Wikipedia, attempting to game the encyclopedia and influence articles on the site related to Israel.
Electronic Intifada quoted a March 13 email from Gilead Ini, a Senior Research Analyst at CAMERA, who enlisted volunteers to make sure articles about Israel on Wikipedia were "free of bias and error, and include necessary facts and context". In a follow-up email from March 17, Ini emphasized secrecy, telling the email list members not to "forward it to members of the news media", and wrote that "There is no need to advertise the fact that we have these group discussions." The media criticism organization Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting criticized the CAMERA emails, calling them "particularly insidious" because "stealth and misrepresentation are presented as the keys to success."
"Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting criticized the CAMERA emails, calling them 'particularly insidious' because 'stealth and misrepresentation are presented as the keys to success.'" Oh, that is so right concerning at least misrepresentation. The stealth part depends upon other factors. Even Jesus used stealth although not harmful or treacherous. He used it when appropriate.
This should tell you about the mentality of the neocons, false Zionists (selfish; always harmful), Federalist Society types at the Department of Justice, and the whole propaganda system of the liars who took the U.S. into a mundanely and divinely illegal war and who have yet to be brought to justice.
Who can trust deliberate liars? Don't choose them to run anything. Don't follow them at all. Spread the word!
