Biased BBC - as bad as the Brussels mayor

BBC staff allegedly edit Wikipedia.

An anonymous Biased BBC reader notes that people at the BBC have made somewhere in the region of 7,000 anonymous Wikipedia edits (i.e. not including those Beeboids who have their own Wikipedia accounts), including this BBC edit of George W. Bush's entry, changing his middle name from Walker to the Beeboid's own name. How amusing.
Of course the real joke is that we telly-taxpayers are paying these morons to sit on their backsides and indulge in their petty personal political prejudices whenever they think they can get away with it.

Update: Lots more BBC Wikipedia edits have been uncovered by Biased BBC readers, (see the comments), including this one, where a BBC Wikipedia editor has changed 'terrorists' to 'freedom fighters'. What a surprise. Lots more Wikipedia edit-o-rama drama to come I'm sure!

Meanwhile, The Grauniad has picked up on this story too (from where they don't say - unlike Biased BBC they don't credit their sources) - but of course, they don't make any mention of their BBC bedfellows penchant for er, 'revising', Wikipedia!

The TV Poll Tax (aka the BBC licence fee should be stopped immediately) http://www.tvlicensing.biz/

The BBC is not regulated by Ofcom for political impartiality and is certainly not politically impartial.
