SourceWatch is a wiki-style website run by the left-leaning Center for Media and Democracy. The website’s content has a liberal bias and the site “cannot guarantee the validity of the information found [on the site]”.
Additionally, the site is marred by hypocrisy in that it attacks center-right organizations and networks for taking anonymous funds it calls “dark money” while its parent organization has received a large portion of its budget from liberal dark money interests.
SourceWatch partners with numerous left-wing publications and environmental activist groups to publish content supporting its liberal issue agenda and to limit business political participation by demonizing the mechanisms pro-business and free-market groups deploy to influence public policy. 
Founded in 2016, Influence Watch is a project of the conservative think tank, Capital Research Center. According to their about page “Capital Research Center conceived of this project after identifying a need for more fact-based, accurate descriptions of all of the various influencers of public policy issues.” In simpler terms, Influence Watch is attempting to be the right leaning counter, to the left leaning Sourcewatch, which profiles how and where think tanks, organizations and media are funded.
Influence Watch is owned by the Capital Research Center, which in turn is funded through donations. Some of their top donors are Exxon-Mobil, Koch Industries, and the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. “CRC’s president is Scott Walter, who took office in 2016.

Ah Project Veritas , Trumps attack dog delivering more alternative facts.
Guessing it was the Dems what done it.
Jen Gennai, head of responsible innovation and global affairs at Google, wrote in a Medium post that members of James O’Keefe’s conservative group Project Veritas filmed her without her consent and “selectively edited” her words to make it seem like Google was influencing the 2020 election. Gennai called this nonsense and wrote that “I was explaining how Google’s Trust and Safety team is working to help prevent the types of online foreign interference that happened in 2016.”
Last October, ThinkProgress reported that Project Veritas had received a $10,000 donation in 2015 from Donald Trump’s controversial Donald J. Trump Foundation, a theoretically charitable 501(c)(3) organization. This reporting was based on a list of charitable payments provided by the foundation to the Washington Post.
But a ThinkProgress review of the Trump Foundation’s 2015 tax filing finds that it reported making not one but two $10,000 donations to Project Veritas in tax-year 2015.
