Right wing scrutiny of philanthropy

Thanks to my colleague, Jack Chin, for finding this (Well, at least I think a 'thank you' is in order)

The Capital Research Center, a right-wing think tank that monitors the nonprofit sector, is now publicizing ideological ("radical left" to "market right") as well as transparency ("poor performance" to "high quality perfornance") ratings on foundations and non-profits? This must be a new feature since not many foundations have been rated yet.
Near as we can figure, the criteria applied to rating foundations is grants to organizations that CRC finds objectionable.
