Ah, those political 'operatives' and 'campaign volunteers' who do the scut work behind the scene and can easily be denied by their sponsors.

What would the spinmeisters do without them?

I wonder what the IP address of Young Trigg would reveal? Other edits or ambitions? This whole situation is highly irregular and very suspicious. It ought to be investigated as quickly as possible. I do wonder what would have been said about Young Trigg if the edits were in the negative? Would we speculate liberal conspiracies, or assume it's from a well researched author? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:59, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Wikinews has been busy[edit]

Chris Benoit, McCain-Obama edit wars, and now this! Great job guys! Keep it up! I'm not being sarcastic. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:51, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Something ain't right[edit]

This reeks to high heaven, and 'young trigg's response to Wikipedia editors reminds me of Shakespeare; 'Methinks thou dost protest too much'. He is obviously connected to either the family or to the campaign and as such the article on Mrs Palin cannot be trusted. It's really sad when the need for 'spin' supercedes the truth. I think even LESS of the Republican Party, John McCain, AND Sarah Palin than I did before...if that's possible. If this is what they're willing to do now during the campaign, just imagine what they'll do once they have the power the so desperately covet. Sad really. This is what we've come to.05:23, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Oh no...for shame, this is the worst possible thing anyone could have done, ever. If only there were any proof the guilty could go straight to the firing squad for this horrible offense. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:09, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Oh noes! Someone actually improved an article. Somebody, quick, write a Wikinews article about it. In other news, your dog wants steak. --Snoring 15:32, 2 September 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)

this is news????[edit]

my god, what have we become?

yeah, I'd like to see Dan Rather reading this steaming pile of @#$% that you bothered to write. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:07, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

"Unusual editing pattern"[edit]

The story says "unusual editing pattern". In what way did Young Trigg's edits show an "unusual editing pattern"? Wanderer57 (talk) 20:50, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
