Palin’s Wikipedia entry altered, NPR says

By Comments

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.
