    Please, an example of "liberal bias" in Wiki. I do believe that it may be there, as well as conservative leanings.
    Anything written by man will have these things.

    Dude I don't know any examples. I was being sarcastic in my post. I think Conservapedia is just one huge joke. But here is what Conservapedia says.

    Wikipedia shows a systematic bias in that tiny proportion of articles which treat controversial issues. It ignores its own NPOV policy when it allows contributors to "delete well-referenced information" merely because it comes from a scientist who holds a minority view. It would only be a violation, if the article used the information to give a false impression of the proportion of scientists adhering to that view, but liberals use "undue weight" like a sledge hammer. They are either unaware or unconcerned about their bias.
    This is not surprising, given this Zogby poll:
    While 97% of Republicans surveyed said the media are liberal, two-thirds of political independents feel the same, but fewer than one in four independents (23%) said they saw a "conservative bias". Democrats, while much more likely to perceive a conservative bias than other groups, were not nearly as sure the media was against them as were the Republicans. While Republicans were unified in their perception of a left-wing media, just two-thirds of Democrats were certain the media skewed right – and 17% said the bias favored the left.

    The third option for each ideology is for people with that sentiment or you can choose other if you wish to make an even stronger statement.

    It really does appear to be a parody site, so if it is meant to be real, it really is kinda sad. But I highly doubt anyone would really take it seriously who didn't already have most of those beliefs anyway.

    We have had posters use it as a source to prove their assertions on this very forum.
