And who funds fair.org?


The internet is a wonderful thing. (Thanks, Al!)

From Fair.org's web site:

"Public support forms the backbone of FAIR’s operations. Approximately 60% of FAIR's revenue comes from subscriptions to Extra! and contributions from our community of supporters. Grants from foundations and public charities comprise about 38% of our total operating budget. FAIR does not accept corporate funding, governmental grants or advertising of any kind."

My theory on this has always been that liberals fund studies at the Universities with known outcomes, while conservatives use think tanks.

With known outcomes? You can be certain of that.

Al Gore gives a grant to a University to prove Global Warming exists. If their research shows otherwise, the grant is rescinded or not renewed.

Is this your "theory" at work, or do you have actual data to back you up? Help me out here; I'm trying to determine if your "theory" is as valid as "intelligent design" or evolution.
