    Scaife/Horowitz (some sources):
    Hollywood's Center for the Study of Public (sp) Culture, which sees liberal 
    bias in
    the movies, got nearly $1.8 million.
    The two set up the Wednesday Morning Club in the office that houses 
    Horowitz's think
    tank, the Center for the Study of Popular Culture. (In 1997 the center 
    received $500,000
    from right-wing billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife.
    In the nineties, Horowitz turned to Hollywood and America's
    culture wars. According to a National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy 
    report, between 1992-1994 his Center for the Study of Popular Culture 
    received more than $3 million from 19 right-wing foundations.  The current 
    edition of The Right Guide points out that the Center received more than 
    $2.3 million, or 83 percent of its revenue in 1997, from contributions and 
    grants awarded by foundations, businesses, and individuals. Donors include 
    $450,000 from the Sarah Scaife Foundation, $231,000 from the Lynde and 
    Harry Bradley Foundation, $200,000 from the John M. Olin Foundation, and 
    $150,000 from the Scaife Family Foundation.
    Horowitz's group received $1,325,000 in
    1994-5 from foundations controlled by Pittsburgh publisher Richard Scaife,
    an ultraconservative who has bankrolled dozens of antifeminist groups.
    1484. Peripheral Visions: The Political Extremes of David Horowitz [re 
    Horowitz's Center for the Study of
          Popular Culture] by Kate Coleman, LA Weekly, January 2329, 1998.
           Coleman, who has penned several versions of "The David Horowitz 
    Story," is back with more on Hollywood's
          conservative mover and shaker. Horowitz's Individual Rights 
    Foundation is providing legal support in defense of a
          $30 million lawsuit against Internet columnist Matt Drudge, publisher 
    of The Drudge Report
          (www.drudgereport.com), and the man who leaked the story about the 
    Clinton sex scandals to the media. The
          Center for Campus Organizing, in its 1997 edition of Uncovering the 
    Right on Campus points out that
          Horowitz's various organizations have received more than $1.3 million 
    from foundations controlled by the
          ultraconservative Pittsburgh publisher Richard Scaife, and Sally 
    Covington (#1474) claims that the CSPC received
          more than $3.2 million from conservative foundations from 1992-94.
