64.26.68.82's violation of NPOV[edit]

I reverted the contribution from 64.26.68.82 made at 10:51 on 6 September 2008 because this user made MAJOR edits to the Steve Preston entry which violate the NPOV principle. User 64.26.68.82 filled the entry with unsubstantiated statements that sound like they come directly from Preston’s PR team. Here are some examples of the kinds of statements that were added that day:

“Preston has more than a quarter century of experience working in government, the financial industry and capital markets. He has developed a track record as a successful and passionate reformer at all levels of business and government.”

“As Administrator, Preston spearheaded a reform agenda and developed 21st century business models to make the agency more responsive, accountable, and effective.”

“Preston quickly won plaudits from HUD employees for helping homeowners and restoring morale at the Department.[9] Faced with the largest mortgage crisis in decades, Preston is leading the Administration’s effort to help families keep their homes and bring stability to the housing market.”

User 64.26.68.82 also deleted large segments of text containing anything even remotely critical of Steve Preston. scotteaux (talk) 05:59, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
