There's commentary on this in various places, including behind the Chronicle's subscription wall, but Michael Feldstein summarizes the case quite well. Basically, a professor had his students create a fake Wikipedia page to show that it could be done, and then made sure the Chronicle knew that Wikipedia is (consequently) unreliable. Feldstein: "By deliberately planting a hoax article-and inviting the Chronicle to write about how he and his students got away with it-he deliberately infected the entire garden with a credibility bug... what he did was malicious and showed a careless disregard for the effort that Wikipedians put in."
