Shining a Little Light: The Center for Media Democracy, which publishes PR Watch and produced the recent report on news stations’ use of VNRS, is embarking on a far more useful project with its launch of Congresspedia, a “citizen’s encyclopedia on Congress” that will compile information about corporate and other large donors to Congressional campaigns and votes that favor those donors.

I have always felt that increased transparency was a better answer to campaign finance problems than restrictions on donations (I believe that’s a free speech issue). I suspect the PR Watch guys would disagree with me on that, but they’ve come up with an elegant solution to the problem.

There’s also an editor’s blog.
