Palin’s Wikipedia entry altered, NPR says
My daughter called to alert me to this story, which she heard on All Things Considered this afternoon. The gist of it is this: Some 15 minutes after rumors of her selection began to circulate, someone unknown made thirty changes, most of them favorable to Governor Palin, to her Wikipedia entry. A quotation was inserted to the effect that she is “a politician of eye-popping integrity” and another change downplayed her participation in a beauty pageant. The segment, which ran for almost four minutes, included the revelation that President Bush’s entry is protected except for Wikipedia editors.
