Another caught with their hands in the wikipedia jar
The modern day cover up is too easily exposed, because you cant ever really delete anything from Wikipedia.
Today’s Wikipedia catch is Tom Waterhouse.
In February Fairfax reported that Occupy Melbourne’s official Wikipedia page was edited twice by a person using a City of Melbourne computer to remove contentious words in the lead-up to the re-election of lord mayor Robert Doyle last year.
However we would like to be recognized as the original source of MCC Occupy Melbourne edits story rather than the oblique ( self ) reference to Fairfax media.
We released it to BoingBoing, where The Age (Fairfax Media) picked it up.
But the question remains what happened to Richard Fosters Melbourne City Council internal investigation into who made the edits?
It’s now almost 3 months later and still no answers.
Clearly none of these people have heard about the Streisand effect.
