Hey maybe these folks would know why records wrt the work of Samuel Bush during the Woodrow Wilson administration were (burned?) disposed of because they took up space? Buckeye Steel was bailed out of bankruptcy in Ohio at the dawn of the next century. It's like Herbert George Walker Prescott Hapsburg Longfellow *ghlorp*. It's a riff.

questoning the first sentence

Can an organization be right-wing, neoliberal, and anti-regulation all at the same time?

I would say probably not. Right-wing is certainly not anti-regulation. They may well be anti-regulation in relation to their preferred(crony) businesses, but right-wingers have shown a distinct predilection towards regulating any and everything they deem to be immoral, as soon as they are empowered.

These seem to me to be three disparate political world views stacked together in an ad hominem attack.

Given that sentence wasn't really expanded on or supported by the following profile I have deleted it from the article and posted it below. --Bob Burton 01:16, 26 Oct 2005 (EDT)

Currently a right-wing, neoliberal, anti-regulation organisation, it has politcally veered between the centre and right during its lifetime.

In the history section it says the group is moving rightwards. In the donation section, it says that it is the principal think tank of the Democrats. This doesn't really make sense.

I deleted the following:

Google searches "Steve Bennett" and "Steven Bennett" did not find anything.

Board of Trustees

I replaced with current. --Stansand 07:01, 7 July 2007 (EDT)

SW: Brookings Conservative or Liberal

Wikipedia notes Brookings as Liberal as referenced by a significant number of Liberal papers (NYT, LAT, etc.) Yet SourceWatch lists Brookings as ever more Conservative. Which is it? Does SourceWatch have a Liberal bias or does Wiki have a Conservative bias? Based on references provided, one would assume the former is true.
