Conservapedia vs. Wikipedia (groan)

"This is just a link to an annoying little site called conservapedia

Maybe groaning is a bit much, but I really like wikipedia. I don't
use it for anything that absolutely has to be right, for that I go to
the campus library and look through their journals. However, if I
only need something quick and easy or if I'm getting started and need
to take a first step, wikipedia is wonderful. When people speak ill
of wikipedia, I get annoyed.

Anyway, conservapedia is based on the wikipedia model, but feels that
wikipedia has too much of a liberal bias. Go check it out. see what
you think. maybe I'm wrong. I just think that, as conservatives], we
need to watch our own, and some of their statements are, frankly,
silly." ~ sociotard
