CBC vandalizes Wikipedia too

One of the stories raging in the Canadian blogosphere today is the Toronto Star’s Wikipedia edit of Rob Ford’s Wikipedia page linking readers to a parody site of the candidate for mayor of Toronto. BCF has the run-down.

I decided to check up on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to see what sorts of edits their staff have made.

First, the IP address belongs to the CBC.

Someone at the CBC has edited an article on George Soros to make the following changes to the text:

It seems that the CBC employee doubts the “official” story.

Further, what does a CBCer think of CTV’s Ben Mulroney, son of Fifth Estate star (and former PM) Brian Mulroney?

    I had no idea Ben Mulroney was a communist. Maybe on a visit to the Front Street bunker, he attended one of the Communist Party Meetings the CBC makes mandatory for their staff

    Oh come on, now. If Robin Williams has taught us anything, it’s that most guys attend Communist Party meetings just hoping to get laid.

    The Toronto Star is Liberal Canada’s version of Fox News, even though they love to castigate Fox for its blatant conservative bias. Is that not the pot calling the kettle black?

    Interesting take on the CBC. I am not surprised.
    Another reason to defund the CBC.

    That CBC IP address has almost 2000!!!! wiki edits dating back four years. Is this a job position at CBC?
