Submission + - Wikipedia pages edited by CIA, Diebold (bbc.co.uk)

gihan_ripper writes: "A new search tool has been used to correlate IP addresses and Wikipedia entries. As reported by Wired, the startling results show that Diebold edited Wikipedia to remove connections with President Bush. Likewise, the BBC reports that a Democratic Party computer was used to edit Rush Limbaugh's page, labelling him "idiotic", "racist", and "a bigot". Finally, the Telegraph writes that members of the CIA were found to have edited the entries of Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon. This is all reminiscent of the storm that arose in January when Microsoft paid a programmer to "correct" its Wikipedia page."
