City Journal on NYPD's Garner edits on Wikipedia: Hey,everyone knows you're supposed to lie on the internet, right? 
You've heard about the NYPD sneaking into Wikipedia to edit brutality victim Eric Garner's page so that it might reflect their own view of events. Probably you figured this is the sort of bullshit that's so egregious even con...

Conservatives are mad at the dictionary for making them look bad. Conspirators everywhere! We'll have this Noah Webster up before the Committee!
