Watching the moneyflow in U.S. politics
August 14, 2006 | By Peter Bihr |
After the ingenious Congresspedia, the Sunlight Foundation has taken the next step to enable citizens to research information about congress and American politics, in other words: to become better watchdogs. In a small yet growing series of screencasts, a financial expert introduces good resources for research and how to best make use of them. The focus so far is how money flows in U.S. politics: Which interest groups donates how much money for which cause and to which senators? Particularly in the age of citizen journalism, this kind of knowledge transfer is excellent stuff!
