The Register: pathetic tabloid hackery

The Register is all squashy on censorship – when it suits one of the million or so bees buzzing around their bonnet. So the Internet Watch Foundation (funded by News Corp) gets its knickers in a twist about a Wikipedia page and accidentally makes Wikipedia verboten for much of the UK.

And what do they have to say?

Wikipedia isn’t a user-generated utopia. It’s a cultish self-contradiction that can’t help but undermine its own ideals

I’ve not quoted the links, but suffice it to say that they’re to a pair of silly-clever “contrarian” opinion pieces that must once have pulled some traffic through the ads, just like their “contrarian” climate change denial turdery.
