Looking in the Government Mirror
Top 25 think tanks were cited 17% less than last year. This is the third year of decline.
Wish that meant something, but FAIR tracks this data by seeing how many times various tanks were referenced by the media. The market for think tanks isn’t you and me, its government, and if current policy fiascos are any indication, pretty much anything GWOT related, it looks like they’re still turning to these sources for thinking.
And they have an imperative to do so, because as the 08 election timer runs down, everyone in government is looking for somewhere to hover (just in case).
