Conservapedia: The Search for the Truth Ends Here

You are surely aware of Wikipedia, the crowd-sourced online encyclopedia. While sometimes comically inaccurate (but rarely nowadays), Wikipedia is actually a fairly reliable resource for basic facts (How many touchdowns has Tom Brady thrown? Which years was Warren Harding president?). It is almost always one of the first few hits on your favorite search engine when looking up a basic fact. In short, it is useful.

But not everyone likes Wikipedia. Some conservatives, for example. So they formed "Conservapedia."

Tell me more, you say? "Conservapedia is a clean and concise resource for those seeking the truth. We do not allow liberal bias to deceive and distort here." Put another way: "We do not allow liberal censorship of conservative facts. Wikipedia editors who are far more liberal than the American public frequently censor factual information." Conservapedia does not give any actual examples of this.
