    I know that many corporations were found to have been editing their entries to look more favourable (specifically Walmart) and the CIA has also apparently been doing a lot of editing of Wikipedia entries. There have been a bunch of articles on Digg about this Wikiscanner.

    I trust Wiki entries about twice as much as I trust stories from other popular journalism sources. Which isn't a whole lot. :rolleyes:

    What's this about the CIA doing a lot of editing? I've only seen one article in which a person working at the CIA added a somewhat sarcastic comment to a page about Iran or something like that.
