I can't believe I missed this article! It came out on the 9th of March.

Wikipedia has accused Congress staff of 'polishing' a number of political biographies.


Congress 'made Wikipedia changes'


Online reference site Wikipedia blames US Congress staff for partisan changes to a number of political biographies.

Computers traced to Capitol Hill removed unpalatable facts from articles on senators, while other entries were "vandalised", the site said.

An inquiry was launched after staff for Democratic representative Marty Meehan admitted polishing his biography.

This makes me wonder, what else has been changed?

since the wikipedia is "open", this isn't exactly unexpected. There is, in fact, constant vandalisation of facts and slandering of people in the wikipedia.

Sure, wiki is open and can be edited.
But, one would hope their government would be above altering history.
After all, through the MSM, the government regularly alters news and history, at least imo.

Although not unexpected, it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Actually, the title of this thread should be 'US Congressmen made changes in Wikipedia entries'.

And there's nothing wrong with that. If everybody else can do it, so can Congressmen.

No conspiracy here. Just a few egotistical politicians buffing up their image.

No conspiracy here? If someone changes something about what they did or didnt do, they are lying. These people are misrepresenting themselves to the people who want more info about them.

Must've been a reeeaaalll slow news day for conspiracies.

Anybody that follows College Football has been seeing this sort of thing for years.

Probably it's a lot more common than we know, but if Joe Blow loses his job because he "polished" his resume, it don't exactly make the 5 O'Clock News.
