In an ideal world, Wikipedia would be bias-free. Instead, we live in this world.
Bias is a systematic deviation from objectivity, fairness, or impartiality, often resulting from personal opinions, beliefs, or preferences. Bias tends to favor one perspective, group, or outcome over others. This can lead to a distortion of the information found on Wikipedia. Bias can manifest in various contexts, such as an individual’s thought process, media coverage, research, or data collection–all of which can eventually find their way to a Wikipedia article.
