that the so called peoples encyclopaedia is
under the control of politicians has come to light in the case of John McCains
running mate Sarah Palin.
Until McCain announced that she would be his
running mate it is fair to say that no one had heard of her. Then in the days
before the announcement, the Washington Post noticed that her Spartan wikipedia
entry was suddenly getting a make over. Apparently with a Wikipedia editors
blessing Palin's page was being edited more frequently than those of other
potential vice presidential candidates.
Her page was specifically garnering
the attention of someone identified as "Young Trigg," who made numerous
edits. Clearly the so called skilled editors at Wikipedia failed to notice
that Palin's youngest child is named Trig and it was clearly a fit up job by
Palins campaign staff.
The site is now locked to prevent poeple writing nasty
things about her now that she is considered notable enough.
