New Wikipedia project seeks to “aggregate facts found in news articles” to scrub out the media bias.

“This is citizen journalism re-envisioned,”
Wiki Co-Founder Creates ‘Wikipedia for News’ to Fight Bias in the Media
“We do not aggregate articles; we aggregate facts which we find in articles.”

PS
Let me add that this is what Paul Thompson has done with History Commons and The Complete 9/11 Timeline, which is the go-to source for research on the topic. Although, lately the sites have been down — denial of service attacks?
