It remains puzzling that a plan allegedly focused on under-served user populations and countries (dubbed "new readers" and "emerging communities") doesn't mention internationalisation or localisation even once. --Nemo 09:12, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Minassian Media, Inc.[edit]

It remains surprising (to me at least) that there is no mention of the potential Conflict of Interest (COI) in continuing to work with the Clinton Foundation's Chief Communication Officer's Public Relations side business for 2017-2018. (In order to find this you really have to dig: it's in Department Programs > Communications > Program 2 (Lead the Narrative). You also need to happen to know that Craig Minassian is the CCO for the Clinton Foundation. Why all the secrecy? If you were upfront about it, that is to say if you were actually "leading the narrative" on this question rather than avoiding questions about it, I think a lot of us would be more sympathetic. (That said, any reasonably well-informed citizen can see that the page on the en:Clinton Foundation does not cover all that has been covered in reliable mainstream sources concerning the CF, and perusing the talk pages makes clear why.) Given that "neutrality" is a big part of the narrative you want to lead, I think it would be good for you to be a lot more forthcoming about your relationship with Jove Oliver & co.

I agree and find this to be an example where the wiki brand has the potential to lose all credibility and become viewed as a political weapon. Kenloebel (talk) 13:26, 17 April 2018 (UTC)

Credibility vs Freedom to Source Anything[edit]

Where is the centralized location that participants can post concerns specific to posts that appear to be public relations attempts to be used as manipulation tools? Kenloebel (talk) 13:29, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
