Because no one else is doing it--not even the media.

WP on the "dark web"

There’s Now a Dark Web Version of Wikipedia
“I'd like to demonstrate the experience to people, so it's no longer something abstract,” Muffett wrote me. “I'd be delighted if Wikimedia use this, or even roll their own solution; the important thing from my perspective is to demonstrate the concept, and my open-source EOTK tool makes it nearly free to provide such a proof of concept.”

Moreover, the Wikipedia onion service is read-only, since Wikipedia blocks editing the site over Tor allegedly to deal with trolls. Making the service more usable will thus require Wikipedia itself to play ball.

As I previously told you: they hate TOR and routinely block editing from known TOR exit IPs. Yet some WP insiders refuse to access it without TOR. This dark-site access will probably facilitate abuse and editwars.
