The Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision opened floodgates to unlimited corporate spending on elections, much of which is spent on often misleading and manipulative attack ads. But identifying false claims, unveiling who funds and approves them, and preventing such media manipulation from moving beyond commercial media into public television is imperative to preserving our democracy. The FCC, some local TV stations, and organizations like The Sunlight Foundation, ProPublica, Free Press, FactCheck.org, and the New America Foundation are leading the way. And we’re jumping in, too. This page aims to help by providing you with information, empowerment tools and links to help you make a difference in the cause of campaign integrity and transparency. We’ll keep adding materials and suggesting helpful sites and sources as we come across them. You can help by suggesting your own ideas and possible partners. Let’s clear the air.
