Think Regress or ThinkRegress (Think Progress nickname)

Think Progress is a blog from the progressive think tank, Center for American Progress. Critics of Think Progress have dubbed it “Think Regress” (or “ThinkRegress”) since at least May 2006. 
Think Progress has also been nicknamed “Stink Progress” (cited in print since at least May 2007). The Center for American Progress has been nicknamed the Center for American Regress since at least July 2007.
Wikipedia: Center for American Progress
The Center for American Progress is a progressive public policy research and advocacy organization. Its website states that the organization is “dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through progressive ideas and action.” It has its headquarters in Washington D.C.
Its President and Chief Executive Officer is John Podesta, who served as chief of staff to then U.S. President Bill Clinton. Located in Washington, D.C., the Center for American Progress has a campus outreach group, Campus Progress, and a sister advocacy organization, the Center for American Progress Action Fund. Citing Podesta’s influence in the formation of the Obama Administration, a November 2008 article in Time stated that “not since the Heritage Foundation helped guide Ronald Reagan’s transition in 1981 has a single outside group held so much sway.”

The opinions of leftist loony toon Soros lie factory ThinkRegress, Turner and Clinton’s Communist News Network, and a few lifelong RINO traitors like Spector are as useless and ridiculous as football bats. Gonzalez did absolutely nothing wrong, you tyrant wannabe.

On The Folks Over At Think Regress
These folks call their organization Think Progress. Ya. Sure. It is more like Think “Progressive” and we all know what that means, as previously stated here.

Hysteria on both sides of the media aisle are silly at this point, and anyone like ThinkRegress to take it that seriously isn’t deemed worthy of participating in the debate.

That thread you started back in April was great!
I did notice the one comment from someone who relied upon Think Regress.

ThinkProgress Celebrates Ronald Reagan’s Birthday By Marketing Its Top Ten Lies Intended to Smear the 20th Century’s Greatest President
That was quick—ThinkProgress attacks Ronald Reagan with their usual slate of laughably fraudulent fabrications

It didn’t take long for the loons at ThinkRegress to begin attacking the memory of the 20th century’s greatest president. The culmination of their effort—‘10 Things Conservatives Don’t Want You To Know About Ronald Reagan’—is a list of Reagan’s policies that conservatives supposedly want to hide from the general public.
