Biased edits?[edit]

I'm somewhat sceptical of two sets of anonymous edits (which might or might not be by the same person)

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Guy_Bourdin&action=historysubmit&diff=388548920&oldid=388355783

(by 86.166.226.216 / host86-166-226-216.range86-166.btcentralplus.com, BT DSL, somewhere in the UK)

There is some blatant POV and obvious bias in the edit (e.g. "While all these rumors fed the diseased mind of many", "no doubt more influential") and factually correct information that nonetheless seems to be chosen to support the author's agenda, e.g. "According to Manolo Blahnik (who did not personally know Guy Bourdin)".

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Guy_Bourdin&action=historysubmit&diff=389902857&oldid=388548920

(by 84.9.122.120 / host-84-9-122-20.dslgb.com, who knows, "DSL G.B.?")

Similar here; "But these life choices made it possible for the press to hijack his biography after his death by relating mostly invented negative traits of his character and constantly feeding on previous sensationalist articles portraying Guy as a monster. Nothing is further from the truth. "

I'm not claiming that the original was unbiased (and it's quite possible to create a biased article either way with selective use of facts and/or the context or manner in which they are used). But these two sets of edits seem transparently biased towards the guy, even if you take out the blatant POV stuff. I'll revert them for now- any thoughts? Ubcule (talk) 21:08, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Name[edit]

From where do you have the name Banares ? --Nieweijiao (talk) 17:08, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

There is no evidence at all for several informations - first of all Guy Bourdin name - born Guy Louis Banarès, no evidence for this in any source I know and that I used to contribute to the french version--Nieweijiao (talk) 21:26, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

I wonder about the quality of this entry, when the creator cannot even spell correctly: "crime seen".
