Comment A sliver of a decent idea (Score 1) 535

It would only take seconds for partisans to slam Fox and CNN as untrue so the idea simply won't work. However, if someone were to create a domain similar to wikipedia that was well regulated and comprised of science and history information known to be authoritarian (or marked that there is debate on the subject) it might do us all a world of good. Wikipedia is great for topics that are not contested (history of the Hundred years war for example) at all but it's censorship-hell for anything that someone might disagree about (politics). Such a site could post science papers and request to repost other stuff of interest and if done properly even the contested stuff could have rational discourse and thus provide useful information.
