FishbowlNY‘s Neal Ungerleider writes about “Wikipedia vandalism” apparently at the hands of people from two news organizations, including FNC.

Ungerleider writes, “Bloggers Geeks Are Sexy compiled a list of Fox News’ extensive Wikipedia edits – which, among other things, posted false information about the ratings of Fox News shows, accused Keith Olbermann of making light of Peter Jennings‘ death and deleted ratings info for MSNBC programs.”
