The Wikipedia Bias Against Bill Sizemore

Wikipedia is neither honest nor factual in its coverage of Bill Sizemore, the well known Oregon tax activist and former Republican nominee for governor. Notwithstanding several courteous attempts at encouraging fair and accurate coverage of Mr. Sizemore’s record and history, Wikipedia continues to grossly misrepresent the truth about who Bill Sizemore is and what he has done. It is the goal of this site to shed light on Wikipedia’s bias and set the record straight.

Readers may hesitate to accept the possibility that Wikipedia’s can at times be dishonest in its coverage, but that hesitance can be dispelled by a simple recognition of the way Wikipedia compiles its “information” about public figures. Here’s how it works: If a major newspapers prints it, Wikipedia almost always treats the statement as fact. It of course follows that liberal, biased newspaper reporting regarding a person will almost always result in liberal, biased reporting in Wikipedia. As of the date of this website’s launch, Wikipedia’s coverage of Bill Sizemore reads as if it had been written by Sizemore’s political opponents, making it one of the most biased, one-sided sites that covers Bill Sizemore.

Given this reality, you should give Wikipedia’s coverage of Bill Sizemore as much credibility as you give The Oregonian and The Eugene Register Guard newspapers, both of which have been notoriously biased toward the political left. As you will learn from exploring this website, the leading newspapers in Oregon have repeatedly told only one side of the story about Bill Sizemore, routinely omitting major facts which would entirely alter a reader’s perception of the truth. This has not been mere happenstance. (Read More... )

Why you can't believe everything you read on Wikipedia 
Following are some facts about Bill Sizemore that you are not likely to read in The Oregonian or on Wikipedia. Unless this website shames such entities into being truthful, they will continue their barrage of misleading stories that conceal rather than elucidate the truth....

This website addresses many of the negative attacks on Bill Sizemore. But readers should know that even though Mr. Sizemore has been smeared in the press and doggedly pursued in court by the public employee unions and by liberal Democrat attorneys general, it has been because of good things, conservative things, he has done for the people of Oregon. In fact, Bill Sizemore’s ballot measures have resulted in property tax and income tax savings of well over $10 billion. The average property owner could pay cash for a brand new car with the amount of money Bill Sizemore has saved them! Because of another of Mr. Sizemore’s measures, thousands of families have been able to build a house on their own land, something previously not allowed under Oregon’s overly strict land use laws. So as you read below all of the negative and dishonest attacks levied against Bill Sizemore and our rebuttals to those claims, please keep in mind that many Oregonians have already seen through the unions and media attacks. In fact, in spite all of the bad things that have been done to him and said about him, Bill Sizemore is often received with cheers and standing ovations when he appears in conservative circles. To many, he is an Oregon hero.
Summary.

  It would take many more pages to refute all of the false or misleading things the liberal media in Oregon have said about Bill Sizemore. Sizemore has been the subject of literally thousands of stories on the nightly television news in Oregon, as well as hundreds of front page newspaper stories. Most stories have cast Sizemore in a negative light. He has been prosecuted, jailed, and publicly smeared for well over a decade. He has been written about in the pages of the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, and other major newspapers across the country. He has appeared on the BBC, ABC’s World News at Night, the McNeil Lehrer News Hour on PBS, as well as literally hundreds of other radio and television shows. Sizemore contends to this day that he has never knowingly or willingly broken the law and even though he has lived for nearly two decades under the media microscope and has been smeared more times than he can count, he says he still has a clear conscience and did his best to make life better for the everyday people of Oregon.  

All things considered, Bill Sizemore’s only “crime” may be that he cut taxes by billions of dollars and challenged the power of the public employee unions that run the state of Oregon. In a state like Oregon, such things are criminal acts to the powers that be. But that is more of a reflection of who they are than who Mr. Sizemore is.
