Learn about corporate "speech" and other "rights" v. people's rights. And help put Americans before corporations.

Visit SourceWatch's new portal on corporate "rights."

This special SourceWatch page has links to the real story about the Supreme Court's revolutionary and unconstitutional decision asserting that federal laws cannot limit corporate "speech." This special page, and the linked pages, also document who is behind the argument that we the people should not be able to regulate corporations, such as Citizens United, which was founded by Floyd Brown of the infamous Willie Horton smear campaign against then-Presidential candidate Michael Dukakis. It also features information on efforts to change the law to put people before corporations. Check out the resources below and click here or click on the badge to your right to help put "Americans Before Corporations."

The Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) publishes SourceWatch, this 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 influence 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. To get started, there's a link to your left on the basics of how you can help write history. We also have guides, such as how to research front groups and uncover propaganda tactics such as the use of the "third party technique," as well as great insider tips for web researching.

Latest picture syntax directions from Tricia (July 2010): <img src="/files/images/bplogosideways.jpg" width="188" height="133" vspace="5" hspace="5" align="right" alt="BPlogo" />



Directions from Tricia for inserting images in PRW: I thought I'd send you the correct syntax for inserting images with or without captions. Essentially, after using image assist to insert the image, the <img src="something" /> tag needs to be wrapped in a span tag like this:


Float right - no caption
<span class="inline right"><img src="/files/images/James_O_Keefe_on_Fox.png" width="188" height="133" align="right" alt="James O'Keefe on Fox News" /></span>


Float left - no caption
<span class="inline left"><img src="/files/images/James_O_Keefe_on_Fox.png" width="188" height="133" align="left" alt="James O'Keefe on Fox News" /></span>


Float right - with caption - notice the second span tag and that the width on the caption is set 2px smaller than the image width: <span class="inline right"><img src="/files/images/James_O_Keefe_on_Fox.png" width="188" height="133" align="right" alt="James O'Keefe on Fox News" /><span class="caption" style="width: 186px;"><i>James O'Keefe on Fox News</i></span></span>


Float left - with caption <span class="inline left"><img src="/files/images/James_O_Keefe_on_Fox.png" width="188" height="133" align="left" alt="James O'Keefe on Fox News" /><span class="caption" style="width: 186px;"><b>James O'Keefe on Fox News</b></span></span> By the way, filling in the "alt" tag when inserting images helps to improve search engine rankings and is a good alternative to using captions -- try it out by hovering over the image after you've filled in the "alt" tag.


To get text to wrap around YouTube videos, add this syntax before the YouTube's embed code, and close the embed code with a close-div tag: <div style="float:left;margin:0 10px 5px 0;">
