In a recent statement, Larry Sanger gave examples of articles on US President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden giving favourable coverage by Wikipedia. The co-founder feels that the posts on Wikipedia are written and monitored by paid writers, who made it extremely partisan. “The platform no longer provides reliable information and has been turned into a propaganda tool by some users,” Larry Sanger added.
