It is my opinion that Wikipedia is being relentlessly targeted to "spin" and market products, persons, and points of view. Not at all unexpected, given its massive popularity on the internet; it's the most important free medium of communication now, and possibly ever.
[[Martha Beck]] is a great example of a vanity article, and the awe-inspiring efforts of the Church of Latter-Day Saints to subvert Wikipedia's NPOV. No, really, you must read the article's history.
I forgot to mention the reason I was at the the Martha Beck article in the first place; Martha Beck is also the name of one half of [[The Honeymoon Killers]] duo, who were executed on 8 March, a much more historically significant personae than the one whose flawed bio article currently has the title.
