Reference 1 being within the ALEC Exposed segment of Center for Media and Democracy could be interpreted as self-referencing

While I don't dispute the importance of this link, it shouldn't really be listed as a reference since it is from the same organization that sponsors Source-Watch, and the same task force. (It is generally a bad habit from a journalistic integrity standpoint to link within organizations with the same funding source. It tends to promote a biased POV and a lack of drawing on more diverse sources of information.) The link provides valuable information but I wonder if this should be moved to a different position. (For instance Additional Links on Topic would be a good choice.)--Ruedii 19:56, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Fixed, imo (shortly after Rueddi posted the above) Anna Haynes 19:26, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
Dear Ruedii--We stand by the research we have posted on the wiki that we manage. We are posting from a variety of sources including our own original research and so in general those citations will stand. Lisa
