Wikipedia Bigotry

On a more unfortunate note it has come to our attention that the English Wikipedia page of The Zeitgeist Movement has and continues to remain non-representative of TZM's work, controlled by anti-TZM editors which systematically remove basic data, while biasing the article in the most trivial and negative light possible.
Wikipedia is known as a collaborative encyclopedia. Unfortunately, Wikipedia is hardly a scientific process in form as it is lends itself not only to a kind of "mob rule", it also allows biased angling for content control by teams of editors that systematically override viable data. 
In this light, Wikipedia has become a powerful tool of propaganda for controversial subjects, as it is one of the most searched web sites online.

We invite all thoughtful, balanced editors to review TZM's Wikipedia page and help to place actual, tangible data about the Movement and overcome the negative/dismissive bias clearly evident in the article.
Basic problems include:

- Clear and present non-neutrality of the article's tone.

- The notability of our global activist day "Zeitgeist Day" is currently ignored overall/being censored. 

- The extremely bigoted, un-notable yet highlighted "Criticism Section", as put forward by fringe, right wing web sites are flagrantly listed. 

- The complete removal of most all core projects/web sites central to TZM, including the refusal to allow The Zeitgeist Movement Defined book, which has been mentioned in 3rd party press reports many times, is apparent. 

- The page is currently design to read like a "fan club" and not a true institution, with editors removing anything that hints at a dedicated, focused and global organization with an enormous following.

There are two core anti-TZM gatekeepers: "AndyTheGrump" & "Earl King Jr."

Here is a recent quote by Earl King Junior who mostly dominates the page, expressing his bias and intent clearly on the Talk page 
"Zeitgeist really is a fringe group cult and that is why the usual media does not bring it up much, its just not taken seriously except by the zealots that believe in it. As you may know it has been called the worlds first large based internet cult...

Is this the kind of person who should be dominating TZM's Wikipedia page?
