Wikipedia Editor Traced to U.S. Senate Changes Snowden's Bio to 'Traitor'
Summary
Edward Snowden's bio on his Wikipedia page changed from "dissident" to "traitor" on Friday.
Description
The IP address of the sleuthing Wikipedia editor was traced back to to the United States Senate. But another crowdsourcing site -Wikipedia user nicknamed Ginsuloft reverted the edit after just one minute,arguing the change didn't reflect a neutral point of view.

"Wikipedia is written by people who have a wide diversity of opinions, but we try hard to make sure articles have a neutral point of view," he wrote on the Wikipedia talk page of the anonymous U.S. Senate user. "Your recent edit to Edward Snowden seemed less than neutral to me, so I removed it for now."
