Elon Musk has entered the definition wars where we change the definition of words to mean something different than they mean. Specifically, Musk took issue with Big Tech company Wikipedia editing the definition of "recession" and locking people from editing it back.
To be clear, according to Facebook and Politifact the people who control Joe Biden DID NOT change the definition of "recession" to protect Biden's political agenda. However, sometime before America hit its second quarter of negative growth last Thursday, which has been a recession every time it has happened since 1948, "someone" changed the definition. It's been reflected on Big Tech company Wikipedia, where the definition was changed to a more Biden agenda-friendly definition. Now there is, quote, "no global consensus on the definition" of what a recession is.
Wikipedia has changed the definition of recession.

If you try to change the definition back to the pre-last week version, Wikipedia won't let you. They locked the page from edits. That's where Elon takes exception because it sure does smell like it's being done for political reasons.
Elon tagged the founder of Wikipedia that the Big Tech platform is "losing its objectivity." An argument can be made that it never had objectivity. Also, Elon hadn't seen anything yet. Wikipedia also changed the definition of the word "definition" and locked edits on that.

? After Wikipedia changed the definition of “recession” and locked the page for editing, they also changed the definition of “definition” and locked it for editing as well ? pic.twitter.com/jqY55g1pEO

Now "definition" is no longer a factual statement. It's a "fluid' statement that "evolves" to "meet the needs of societal change." Like, and I'm just spitballing here, the political agenda of a world leader. A world leader whose political agenda is shared by the Big Tech industry.
Though the definition of "recession" was NOT changed to save Joe Biden. That can not be stressed with a straight face enough.
