New Participatory Project: Help Expose the Attempts to Spin Wikipedia

Two weeks ago we told you about the "Wikipedia Scanner" - a new tool that scans the anonymous edits made to Wikipedia and can identify those made from the computers at places like the CIA, Wal-Mart and political campaign headquarters. The Wikipedia community has done a solid job of rooting out the attempts to add spin and misinformation to the encyclopedia, but at SourceWatch we want to make sure those additions are preserved as part of these companies' and organizations' permanent records. You join the citizen journalists and CMD staff in this effort by taking the Scanner for a spin and logging your results into SourceWatch. The full details, instructions and tips are at this participatory project's homepage on SourceWatch - no technical expertise is necessary.

If this is your first time editing on SourceWatch, you can register here, and learn more about adding information to the site here and here.
