WTF[edit]

There are so many problems with this article. For one, it pretty much reads like the Pew Research Center's about page. Looking at the history, I see that's exactly what it used to be before it was alternately vandalized and repaired. It contains almost no information content. Does anybody know anything about the history or activities of this organization? And I mean something that doesn't come from their PR department. --WurdBendur (talk) 22:32, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Merge into The Pew Charitable Trusts?[edit]

If anyone's out there, let's vote. --RobbyPrather 00:47, 7 November 2005 (UTC)

I actually don't think they should be joined. The Pew Research Center is a strictly nonadvocacy organization, while the Pew Charitable Trusts supports advocacy and nonadvocacy projects. The two organizations have separate missions and should thus continue as two separate pages. --—Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.200.175.146 (talkcontribs)
I think I agree with you, I just thought I would see what others think. Thanks for your input. Do you have any content you'd like to add to either of the articles? They could use some work. --RobbyPrather 04:45, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Link doesn't work[edit]

There is no source for the quotation "a gigantic scheme to raze U.S businesses to a dead level and debase the citizenry into a mass of ballot-casting serfs." ......so I removed this line

"To get some idea of its theoretical basis here is a quote from its founder: Joseph Pew, "Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, "a gigantic scheme to raze U.S businesses to a dead level and debase the citizenry into a mass of ballot-casting serfs."

Democratic or conservtive?[edit]

Quote from this page

The Pew Research Center is a strictly Democrat Party supporting organization

However, on The_Pew_Charitable_Trusts it says that the founder of the subjects funder are conservative. Are both statements really correct? If so, I think a clarification/explanation of this slightly odd combination is necessary. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.216.95.22 (talk) 21:12, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit]

We should upload the Pew Research Center's logo. The page current has the logo of one of the Center's projects in the spot where the Pew logo should go.

I believe the correct logo is the one found on its Twitter account. http://twitter.com/#!/pewresearch — Preceding unsigned comment added by Editbailey (talkcontribs) 18:01, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

No. The Center for Climate and Energy Solutions is not part of the Pew Research Center. The center consists of the projects listed on http://pewresearch.org/about/projects/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.204.141.37 (talk) 03:02, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
