Public Radio's On the Media has a story segment this week of some interest to readers here. Brooke Gladstone interviews Eve Fairbanks, Associate Editor of The New Republic about how editors on Wikipedia are shaping articles about candidates in the 2008 Presidential Election.

QUOTE(Story Blurb)
Editors in Chief

For supporters of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama the candidates' Wikipedia pages have become a key election battleground. The up-to-the-second nature of user-generated, user-corrected content means that an editor’s work is never done. The New Republic's Eve Fairbanks explains the political stakes of wiki-work.

The audio segment can be accessed from On the Media's web site or downloaded as an MP3 file.

The original article by Eve Fairbanks in The New Republic is entitled Wiki Woman and includes reader comments.
