Palin’s Wikipedia Entry Gets Overhaul

If you happened to check Sarah Palin’s Wikipedia entry Thursday, you might have had a good tip about Friday’s announcement.

Someone — and apparently it was just one person — felt like the existing biography wasn’t appropriate for a vice-presidential candidate.

On Friday, 15 minutes before the rumor that John McCain had picked Palin as his running mate, a Wikipedia editor discovered 30 mostly favorable changes had been made to the Alaska governor’s profile.

She was called “a politician of eye-popping integrity” and sections on her participation in a beauty pageant and her alleged use of influence to get her former brother-in-law fired were diminished.

Wikipedia is now restricting who can alter Palin’s page.

Epic Wiki edit fail by Young Trigg. LOL!
