Be fair

Propagandists engage in selective presentation of evidence. Articles written for SourceWatch should strive for a higher standard, by summarizing all evidence and points of view on a subject accurately and thoroughly. SourceWatch’s Congresspedia component will inevitably attract detractors and supporters of the public officials covered in its articles, but if those articles become partisan or biased then they will no longer have value for the general public. Likewise, content contributed to Congresspedia should be related to the public statements and official acts of a public official and not related to their election or the merits of their candidacy or their challengers. Users who wish to contribute to Congresspedia as a resource for the general public should strive to be factual and fair; users wishing only to vandalize the site will be blocked.
