Microsoft has been busted for offering to start paying a blogger to make edits to its Wikipedia entries. I am 300% certain that other companies have employees making sure that Wikipedia entries are tweaked to favor themselves, but you have to shake your head at Microsoft for going out-of-house on this. Microsoft has admitted that it violated the Wikipedia terms and conditions but claims that is HAD to correct those errors somehow. I'm shocked, shocked I tells ya. Next thing we'll be hearing about famous bloggers making edits on their own entries.
