David Horowitz Freedom Center
The David Horowitz Freedom Center, formerly known as the Center for the Study of Popular Culture (CSPC), is a project of ex-Marxist turned right-wing activist David Horowitz and Peter Collier. (The name change took effect in early July 2006). 
The Center consists of three "departments":
- FrontPageMag.com, a conservative daily online magazine
- Wednesday Morning Club, "a lunch forum that provides a platform in the entertainment and media industry for conservative speakers and ideas." 
- The Individual Rights Foundation ("IRF"), which deals with conservative legal issues
It is also affiliated with:
- Students for Academic Freedom, a network for right-wing college students
- Discover the Network, a Campus-Watch-like site tracking "leftists" and "jihadists"
Additionally, in the 1990s, the CPSC sponsored the Committee for Media Integrity (COMINT), an organization designed to identify purported "liberal bias" in public television and promote the defunding of PBS, (Source: David Brock, The Republican Noise Machine: Right-Wing Media and How It Corrupts Democracy, 2004, p. 104).
An announcement dated July 7, 2006, in FrontPageMag.com headlined: "A New Birth of Freedom" began: "The Board of Directors of The Center for the Study of Popular Culture announced on the Fourth of July that the organization has changed its name to The David Horowitz Freedom Center. The new center has hired Peter Collier, former publisher of Encounter Books, and Buzz Patterson, former presidential aide and author of Reckless Disregard, as vice president and chief operating officer. As part of its expansion, the Center has agreed to host the Liberty Film Festival, Hollywood’s only conservative annual awards event." link to article
