Why the reversion to false info sourcing w dead-link?[edit]

THE FOLLOWING IS MOVED FROM Michael Bednarek TALK PAGE: Why did you revert wnyc to remove the nypr reference and all those wikilinks Your reversion also restored a factual error which references a dead-link as supporting evidence. Why did you that?Formulairis990 (talk) 22:46, 6 May 2016 (UTC)

Hint: It helps if you include a link to the relevant page. I assume you refer to my edit at WNYC.
First, this discussion should be at Talk:WNYC. Second, read my edit summary; it explains almost every part of my edit. In the main, I removed your reintroduction of material in the lead section not directly to WNYC, but to New York Public Radio. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 03:18, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
You're edit summary doesn't explain why you replaced factually sourced info with false information sourcing a dead link.
In addition the edit you reverted to was the first edit of an anonymous account that has no activity beyond the day of the edit.
You also oddly removed links from the infobox, and you cite WP:REPEATLINK
Yet that page specifically states at the start that You CAN REPEAT links in infoboxes, as many articles do
I copied this to the wnyc talk page. As you wish we can continue there.

I replaced the citation you removed for NYPR ownership of the WNYC stations.
I re-added infobox links as WP:REPEATLINK allows in infoboxes.
I removed your edit of replacing NYPR with WNYC as the owner of other stations. You cited a dead url, which itself explicitly used the words New York Public Radio: "http://www.wnyc.org/articles/wnyc-news/2011/jun/29/blog-new-york-public-radio-acquires-four-njn-radio-stations/"
It was also confusing to read in a preceding paragraph that WNYC stations are owned BY NYPR, and then to read that WNYC owns stations itself.
