US Politics Goes Wiki

A political news and views website launched in the US is using a wiki platform in an innovative approach to its subject.

PoliticalBase.com aims to become an information hub for journalists and voters in the US and is using similar interactive technology deployed by sites such as Wikipedia, reports C/Net News.

Users contribute to the site’s content, which includes entries on individual politicians and information on government departments, and submit their work to a staff editor for checking.

The site also lists its top posters and users on its homepage and allows political bloggers to embed its own charts on their pages.
