Cute cartoons. Great articles on SeekingAlpha.com! I looked you up on the wikipedia and thought you might want to know that your profile has been marked for deletion. It will be deleted in 5 days unless it is improved in some way. Good luck!

Wikipedia must have concluded that MP is a conservative.

Can one take Wikipedia seriously when one reads the entry for Hugo Chavez. Inflation figures are not updated past 2005 nor is there any information provided regarding Chavez's link to terrorism. Raids on FARC by Colombia resulted in the seizure of computers with extensive correspondence and evidence of funding going back a decade between Mr. Chavez and leaders of the FARC.

Under the circ, it is difficult to see Wiki as anything by a highly biased source to be taken with a large measure of salt and independent verification.

Yea Wikipedia is brutal,

It doesn't even detail any of George Bush's connections to terrorism either!

Are you saying that Wiki wouldn't be correct in assuming Dr. Perry is a conservative? I'd bet the farm on it.

Sure, he's a conservative. That's the point. Given the number of visits to this website and the variety of content, why wouldn't Mark Perry merit a profile?

It is a very left leaning website. I use it and it has lots of useful information but you do have to watch for bias and completeness.

Let's face it you always have to look for bias and test the data with most things that you read. We are bombarded with information and sometimes, the assumption is that most people won't check. What you can find buried in the footnotes of studies from partisan think tanks is enough to make you a lifelong skeptic.

You can't just take what Wiki or anyone else presents as the word of God. People have an amazingly consistent habit of leaving out the bits that don't fit the story they are telling.
