 Byron York on People for the American Way & media on National Review Online
The lobbying side, People for the American Way, is a so-called 501(c)(4) organization — named for the section of the Internal Revenue Service code that provides for such groups — and is legally allowed to engage in partisan political activity.
But the other half of People for the American Way, the People for the American Way Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) organization, meaning it is allowed to receive tax-deductible charitable donations but is prohibited by law from engaging in partisan political work.
While it is true that People for the American Way does engage in some nonpartisan projects — like the purchase and exhibition of a 1776 copy of the Declaration of Independence — the group's aggressive attacks on the Bush administration suggests that the line between partisan and nonpartisan can sometimes be quite blurry.

 Joseph C. Wilson: People for the American Way Address - Politics on The Huffington Post
I now understand, as have other generations of Americans, that the fight for freedom and equality, for a social order based on merit, not birth, wealth, or partisan allegiance, is never ending.
This is a fight against those who would drive citizens from the public square not by virtue of their better arguments or policy prescriptions, but by a systematic campaign of character assassination, punctuated with lies, distortions, unfounded allegations and innuendo.
It is, in short, a fight for governance "of the people, by the people and for the people" against those for whom power and privilege is paramount.
