Wikipedia temporarily bans contributions from Capitol Hill

Listen in RealAudio

public, Wikipedia, has begun an investigation into articles edited from Capitol Hill. It appears some Hill staffers tweak articles to make their bosses look good, while others try to slip in some negative information about political opponents. The investigation comes after the Lowell Sun newspaper of Massachusetts discovered an article about the local congressman was a little too positive.
