PHOENIX -- A report from a left-leaning organization recently slammed the Phoenix-based Goldwater Institute for putting corporate interests above people.

The Center for Media and Democracy also accused the conservative think tank of hypocrisy because it takes taxpayer money from lawsuits against the state while pushing less government spending.

The report, “A Reporter’s Guide to the Goldwater Institute. What Citizens, Policymakers, and Reporters Should Know,” also questioned a financial arrangement between it and one of its board members.
