I tweaked thge lead and deleted the link to the SW article on the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth - couldnlt see what the connection is/was between TCS and the Swifties. The section on climate change and generics needs some referencing if it is going to remain. --Bob Burton 23:06, 5 Jun 2005 (EDT)

Regarding the question of why past funders should be listed as well as current funders: SourceWatch is intended to serve as a source of fair and accurate information about "people, issues and groups shaping the public agenda." This includes information about an organization's past funders as well as its current funders. Information about past funders isn't "outdated," it is just historical rather than current. (It isn't "outdated" to say that Bill Clinton is a former president of the United States or to say that Ken Lay used to be CEO of Enron.)

To ensure that this is clear in the TCS article, I amended the subhead of the funding section to read, "Past and Current Funders."
