Wikipedia Editing for Zionists - NYTimes.com:

This week in Jerusalem, two Israeli groups hoping to smite their online enemies, both domestic and foreign, began a course in the “Zionist editing” of Wikipedia entries.

... For example, [an organizer] said, “if someone searches [for] ‘the Gaza flotilla,’ we want to be there; to influence what is written there, how it’s written and to ensure that it is balanced and Zionist in nature.”


I knew the wikipedia wasn't neutral. It ca be easily dominated by guys on couches with nothing to do, if they're interested enough. Still, this puts an interesting face on the wikipedia's politics. And that's right; the wikipedia has politics if only through the sorts of speech and edits it enables -- and the editors it privileges.
