CIA and the Vatican modifes Wikipedia
By martin on Aug 16, 2007
I just read a news article in a Swedish newspaper about CIA and the Vatican modifying information in Wikipedia. It was discovered when the folks at Wikipedia analyzed who has modified what, and discovered some interesting things.
Someone from the Vatican have modified the entry on Gerry Adams (the leader of Sinn Fein) and removed a link relating to his connection to a double homicide in 1971.
The person from CIA had only made minor adjustments, like adding the comment "Wahhhhhhh!" to the page about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (the president of Iran).
So why am I amused by this? Because I'm an audit freak, and this is an excellent example of why you want auditing. You catch people with their hand in the cookie jar :)
Update: I've found a BBC news article about this too, so it will be easier for you read about this.
