THINK TANK LEAGUE TABLE….Apparently 2007 was a bad year for think tanks: FAIR reports that overall media citations were down 17%. I blame blogs. Brookings is still the undisputed heavyweight champ, followed by CFR and a trio of conservo-tanks. Cato comes in at #9, not bad for a scrappy libertarian outfit. The New America Foundation bucks the overall trend and gets top honors in the year-over-year rankings, with a 44% increase in citations. EPI does worst, clocking in at -52%. A complete list of the top 25 think tanks is below.
