Why Wikipedia needs Marketers.

Personally, I find it funny that they say 60% Wikipedia entries contain
factual errors and talk ONLY about articles relating to companies.

I hate this talk of 'balanced info' which they dump on us. We strive to be
neutral, if you're company has negative mentions, we can't help it. That
would be the company's fault.
