Re: Wikipedia’s Editing Bias and Resulting Consequences
I am writing on behalf of my client Gary Null, PhD. In the past, I have written to the Wikimedia Foundation’s legal department on several occasions. Those letters were also copied to members of the Foundation’s Board in an effort to find a rational and amicable means to address the fact that Dr. Null has been and is being defamed on his Wikipedia biography, which is constituted as a Biography of a Living Person (“Null BLP”). Our many attempts over the years to edit the Null BLP to bring accuracy and neutrality with verifiable references have been either reverted or censored. Likewise, we have identified and communicated with many other advocates and practitioners of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and non-conventional medicine who likewise have been defamed on Wikipedia and similarly denied the opportunity to make corrections. This includes internationally recognized persons such Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. Rupert Sheldrake. Despite having received enormous global press coverage for decades, nearly 100% positive, Dr. Chopra’s Wikipedia BLP is laden with unconditional condemnations, slander and blatant untruths about his character, professional achievements, publications and theories. The attached document provides evidential testimony to this truth.
