(Even More) Wikipedia Unreliability

In the United States, staff members for a congressman in Howard Dean's Democrat party, Martin Meehan, have re-written Wikipedia to make their boss look better.
Wikipedia is thus only as reliable as the blogosphere is vigilant.....

Update I:
Contra the use of Wikipedia for scholarly research, read this NYT article on "Rewriting History: Snared in the Web of a Wikipedia Liar."

Update II:
(Even more) problems with wiki-(scowl)-pedia detailed here. The Encyclopedia Brittanica was good enough for Sherlock Holmes .....

Update III:
It gets outright rotten.
