Gingrich Spokesman Constantly Fiddling With Newt's Wikipedia Page

News

The number one reason nobody likes pedantic swamp bubble Newt Gingrich is because of all the horrible things they are reading about him on his Wikipedia page, obviously. Why else would Newt campaign spokesman Joe DeSantis spend so much time glued to his computer belaboring minor edits to Newt and Callista's Wikipedia entries that even CNN finally bothered to notice and make fun of it?


This should fix Newt's horrifying favorability ratings, sure:

Wikipedia records show DeSantis has made over 60 adjustments to entries in the online, publicly-edited encyclopedia to the biographical entry on Gingrich, the similar page on his wife, Callista, and a separate page on one of their books, Rediscovering Good in America.

DeSantis has actively lobbied for changes to the articles since mid-December in a discussion forum called "Talk" on the site, and previously from May to June of last year, though his most recent direct edit to the site was in June of 2011.

Oh, so he doesn't even make edits on the site anymore. DeSantis just lurks around Wikipedia crafting tomes to lobby for the revision of some completely trivial detail, like this complaint thread from today that we spotted in three seconds of looking over the Wikipedia Talk page for Callista Gingrich:

Several recent changes to this article concern me, and there are two in particular from the "Personal life" section. Recently, someone has added this sentence:

In 2002, Newt Gingrich asked the Catholic Arch Diocese in Atlanta to annul the 19-year marriage to Marianne on the basis that she had been previously divorced.

This detail is not about Callista Gingrich and does not belong here. I would respectfully like to ask for another editor to remove it from this page.

Second, in this edit the clause "a lifelong Roman Catholic" referring to Callista was moved from the end of the paragraph to the beginning. This previously was included in a sentence about her role in Newt's version to Catholicism, where it is relevant. It is now used in a sentence about Newt's divorce proceedings, where it seems intented to depict her in an unfavorable light. I would like to ask that the previous version be restored. Thank you. Joe DeSantis Communications Director, Gingrich 2012 (talk) 16:09, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Oh well, sounds like DeSantis can always get a job later with the team of self-appointed wingnuts who keep Wikipedia's American history sections up to date with Sarah Palin's constant errors. [CNN]

The mass murders at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, and at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, are still killing people. Two survivors of Parkland killed themselves in the past week, and this morning, the body of the father of one of the Sandy Hook children was found in Newtown. And something like 35,800 guns will be sold today, if 2019 stats are comparable to 2018 sales figures. But cheer up -- without Barack Obama scaring everyone with his promise to take all the guns, that's down 16 percent from the highest gun sales in history in 2016. Then again, despite the lower gun sales, there were nearly 40,000 deaths caused with firearms in 2018. It was the third record year in a row. We're Number One.

The news has been just horrifying. On March 17, Sydney Aiello, 19, who'd been on campus at Stoneman Douglas the day of the 2018 massacre, killed herself. She'd been a close friend of one of the girls who died in the shooting, and had been diagnosed with PTSD, according to her mother. She had started college but found it hard to just to sit in classrooms because of her fears that a gunman might burst in. Then, this weekend, another Stoneman Douglas student, a male sophomore, as yet unidentified, killed himself -- like Ms. Aiello, with a gun.

Today, police in Newtown found the body of Jeremy Richman, a neuropharmacologist and the father of Avielle Richman, who was only 6 years old when she was one of the 20 children and six adults murdered at Sandy Hook in 2012. Richman and his wife, Jennifer Hensel, had founded a nonprofit to research the neurological problems that might lead to violent behavior. The foundation had an office in the complex where Richman's body was found. The couple were also among the Sandy Hook parents suing Alex Jones for spreading the false conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook massacre was faked as part of a plot to take all the precious guns away.
