SourceWatch (formerly Disinfopedia) is a wiki operated by the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD), a progressive non profit organization. According to the project's website, it "aims to produce a directory of public relations firms, think tanks, industry-funded organizations and industry-friendly experts that work to influence public opinion and public policy on behalf of corporations, governments and special interest groups."
On behalf of the Center for Media and Democracy, the Center's then-Research Director Sheldon Rampton started SourceWatch on January 15, 2003 and launched it publicly with 200 articles created by the Center on March 10, 2003. The site's content is licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License.
