Controversial Supreme Court Decision

I believe it was about two years ago the Supreme Court issued a decision relating to campaign contributions. It was controversial in some quarters. Can someone provide an objective/non-politica summary of it?

Here's a report from the Christian Science Monitor which tries to provide "just the facts".

And here's the wiki article: Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission.
