I had the exact same problem than you and spent days analysing some of my clients User Explorer reports, segmenting by sessions with campaigns correctly attributed via utms. The net result was: the "Source / Medium" dimension on "User Explorer" reports are never correct, so I think it's a bug. What I do is previous segmenting my sessions by the campaign (...

Check your http/https redirection and make sure nothing is lost, sometimes it drove me crazy in the past with Analytics. I'll do a little experiment: Create a unique medium/source for the test.

If you really can not (do not want) to touch the source code, you can use Google Analytics Advanced Filter.

See ...

I agree with Anagio here. It is a matter of a best practice. The campaign name should be "Adwords Content Network", and the Source should have {placement}. You can also append "adwords content network: {placement}" if you want this field clearer in your reports. If your campaigns are time-based then make the campaign name "Adwords content network July 2014"...
