Politico Journalist's Wikipedia Edited to Claim He's Assisting the Clinton Campaign


The internet strikes again.

Glenn Thrush, the chief political correspondent for Politico, has recently come under a lot of fire after leaked emails from WikiLeaks show Thrush appearing to ask Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta to approve of a story he was writing. Now the internet is showing Thrush what it thinks of him.

On Friday, someone had edited Thrush’s page on Wikipedia to read that he, along with working for Politico, also “assists with the Hillary Clinton presidential election team.”

At the time of writing, the article was again edited slightly to read that Thrush is “currently assisting with the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.”

Thrush has denied any wrongdoing and Politico has come to his defense in the past. Thrush currently has a pinned tweet on his Twitter profile claiming that he only said what he said in the email so that he could get Podesta to confirm information he had gotten from lesser sources.

Thrush does seem to have a sense of humor about it though. When MRC’s own Andrew Mullins tweeted to Thrush that someone had edited his Wikipedia page, Thrush was surprised to even have a Wikipedia page in the first place.
