Complaints Over Wikipedia Accountability With Bios

Daniel Brandt’s been upset over the accuracy and presence of a page about him at Wikipedia, and now John Seigenthaler, the former assistant to US Attorney General Robert Kennedy, is upset as well over his Wikipedia biography, venting his frustration in a USA Today article.

A false Wikipedia ‘biography’ has Seigenthaler sounding out his complaint, the 78 year old declaring that only one sentence in his bio was true. He managed to get Wikipedia to remove the material he objected to removed, though with Wikipedia’s community editing system, I don’t see anything that prevents that from coming back.
