In its own words:
"A collaborative, specialized encyclopedia of the people, organizations, and issues shaping the public agenda. SourceWatch profiles the activities of front groups, PR spinners, industry-friendly experts, industry-funded organizations, and think tanks trying to manipulate public opinion on behalf of corporations or government. We also highlight key public policies they are trying to affect and provide ways to get involved."

Main focus: Fracking, ALEC, Koch Brothers, State Policy Network, US/National Debt


SourceWatch is very useful as a reference, though does have its blindspots, such as in 9/11 and other false flags where it uncritically repeats the official narrative.[1][2]

"Bailout"http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/BailoutA globally organised shift of money from ordinary taxpayers to the already hyper-rich who control the banking and political systems.
"Conspiracy theorist"http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Conspiracy theoristAn enemy image used for ad hominem attacks on people as a way of misdirecting attention away from their arguments
"Conspiracy theory"http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Conspiracy theoryAn enemy image used to equate scepticism of government with craziness. It was developed by the CIA to try to contain doubt about the FBI's "Oswald did it, case closed" approach to the JFK assassination. It is now being associated with dangerous and violent insanity, in an effort to promote internet censorship of free speech.
"Counter-terrorism"http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Counter-terrorismA component of the military-industrial-terrorism-congressional complex which has seen a dramatic growth since 9-11.

"National security"http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/National securityLike the idea of 'Patriotism', the notion of 'National Security' is one designed to bind all members of a society together. By evoking fear of its opposite it creates a suitable psychological frame for the abdication of personal responsibility to the nation state. In the 21st century, the concept is repeated like a mantra in en effort to justify ever more opaqueness in the workings of governments tired of legal restrictions such as rights of their citizens.
"Terrorism"http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/TerrorismThose atrocities which are not committed by governments.
