Conservative superstar Milo Yiannopoulos has announced over Instagram that he is suing the New York Observer for libel. The Observer ran a headline based on his response to a media request where he joked about “vigilante squads gunning down journalists” that made it seem as though he was encouraging violence, specifically causing Thursday’s shooting in Maryland that left five dead.
Milo spoke exclusively to Big League Politics explaining his reasoning for the lawsuit.
“The New York Observer and its reporter Davis Richardson knowingly and maliciously cooked up a hysterical frenzy, presenting a dumb private remark as a ‘threat’ or ‘incitement,'” Milo stated. “The only people making a fuss about hurting journalists this week were other journalists, and they did so knowing they were spreading dangerous falsehoods. The Observer and their reporter are directly responsible for the 250,000 tweets today accusing me of complicity in the deaths of five people, and they are going to pay for their malicious libel.”
Milo sent the message to Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer, who was requesting comment on a story relating to him joining the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP). The message was clearly sent as a joke, which from Milo isn’t a stranger to. Despite this, the article was run making it seem as though he was making a call to violence.
Sommer is well known for attacking conservatives, and runs a weekly newsletter which does just that on a regular basis. Milo not taking his request seriously shouldn’t have been much of a surprise, and his response could have been easily ignored, or at least reported in context.
After reports of the shooting in Maryland, which was targeted at the Capital Gazette, thousands of Tweets referencing the Observer’s article came out blaming Milo for the shooting. As it turns out, the shooting was not motivated by Milo, or any political figure, but rather a lawsuit the shooter lost in 2015 against the paper.
In his Instagram post showing a text message to the reporter who covered his story, Milo states that he is spending money he was initially going to spend to sue publisher Simon & Schuster, who dropped a settled book deal with him a year ago. Milo appears to pledge to spend $3 million on the lawsuit.

Wikipedia’s Founder is Creating New Free Speech Competitor to Website, Citing Leftist Domination
Larry Sanger is the original creator of Wikipedia.
The man who originally created online encyclopedia Wikipedia is pledging to create a new platform to replace it, citing Wikipedia’s left-wing bias.
Larry Sanger, who co-founded Wikipedia in 2001 before leaving the project, is describing his Encyclosphere as a networked aggregation of existing and new encyclopedia content, which will be distinguished from the colorful and unverified content slung onto Wikipedia by the site’s user base. Sanger envisions millions of people writing and submitting encyclopedia entries, which can be rated and judged for accuracy by their readers themselves, rather than the “arrogant and controlling oligarchy” Sanger maintains is running Wikipedia.

Sanger admitted that Wikipedia had become “badly biased” last year, citing the use of political propaganda by establishment editors on the site who consistently lock down articles pertaining to publicly discussed topics and figures.
Sanger cited pages documenting the history of the Soviet Union as an example of Wikipedia bias in remarks provided to Just the News on Friday. He’s previously cited Wikipedia pages for Donald Trump and Jesus Christ as examples of the thick leftist bias on the platform, disregarding Wikipedia’s old “no point of view” policy in favor of content that serves as little more than left-wing hitpieces.
Left-wing operatives, at times paid by powerful interests, use Wikipedia’s seniority system to defame conservatives and protect the reputations of their own progressive and liberal daddies. Allegations of child grooming and wide-ranging sexual harassment were hidden from the page of Lincoln Project pedophile John Weaver, with leftist editors claiming the information wasn’t relevant.
John Weaver has some top tier (probably paid) Wikipedia editors who are keeping allegations of sexual misconduct off of his page, even though he's admitted to some of them. Establishment media and political figures often utilize this to protect their reputations. @willchamberlain pic.twitter.com/eyR491lbTb

Wikipedia may very well be the most compromised and deceptive Big Tech platform present on the internet, using faux status as a neutral encyclopedia to defame conservatives and right-wingers. More disturbingly, Wikipedia has been used to distort historical events and culture, advancing the philosophy of hate under the guise of the 13th most popular website on the internet.
Sanger’s project may present a desperately needed alternative, and may recapture the Internet’s original spirit of free expression and the flow of information.
