Capital Research Center's Latest News items


CARMA & Others, I'm eager to share the latest from CRC with you:
  • Look what Big Labor bought last year
    Last week, CRC's Mike Watson commemorated the law that requires unions to report their spending. This week, Watson takes a deeper dive to see how they paid for bad baseball and bad science--not to mention $60,000 in voter turnout efforts. Read what Big Labor buys here.

  • Revealed:  The shadowy special interests behind "net neutrality"
    As federal courts uphold the Trump administration's rollback of Obama-era internet regulations, CRC's Hayden Ludwig reminds us that so-called "net neutrality" is a product of the socialist Left, underwritten by a handful of wealthy special interests--including Demand Progress and the Media Democracy Fund, two front groups for the shadowy nonprofit empire run by the consulting firm Arabella Advisors.

  • When your tax dollars help groups sue the government . . .
    . . . everyone loses. Lawsuits against the government can be expensive, and plaintiffs may have ulterior motives beyond simply arriving at the correct application of the law. And when suits are brought by groups already feeding at the federal trough, the issue becomes especially thorny. CRC's Robert Stilson takes a close look at what happens when groups like the National Resources Defense Council and the Environmental Defense Fund bite the hand that feeds them.
  • NBC News is wrong: the Epoch Times is not a pro-Trump "dark money" operation.
    In August, NBC News claimed that the Epoch Times, a right-leaning newspaper founded by anti-Communist Chinese expatriates, had "obfuscate[d] its connection to some $2 million worth of ads that promoted the president. . . ." CRC's social media team of Jake Klein, Caleb Sutherlin, and former intern James Selvey investigate those claims and prove they're false here.
