From The NY Times:
After a debate among readers who also cast votes on the issue, the Wikipedia administrator essentially killed the page by having it redirect to the general article on the Obama-Biden presidential campaign; all that is left of the original article is the simple statement: “On April 30, 2012, the campaign announced that its slogan would be ‘Forward.’”
After a similar debate, another Wikipedia article “Forward (generic name of socialist publications)” — with its examples of titles like Eteenpain, a Finnish-American Communist newspaper, and Avante!, produced by the Portuguese Communist Party — was simply deleted.
Wikipedia’s decision became news before it was even made: The Drudge Report last week issued a call to arms to its readers, linking to the “Forward” article under the headline “WIKIPEDIA mulls deleting entry on Obama-Biden slogan…”
The article also discusses how editors handled a situation from earlier this year involving a Newt Gingrich spokesperson.
