NYT: Conservative Think Tanks Being "Marginalized"

The New York Times has made a bold claim: Conservative think tanks are being marginalized.  Here is what they say:
The policy journals and think tanks that once played a key role in shaping conservative thought have been marginalized by the grass-roots populism of talk radio, Fox News, local political movements — and now, perhaps, documentary films.

The statement was made in an article about Dinesh D'Souza, a political commentator, author, filmmaker, and convicted felon, who has been affiliated with a number of powerful conservative think tanks, including the Heritage Foundation, American Enterprise Institute (AEI), and the Hoover Institution.

So, what do you think?  Are conservative think tanks being marginalized?
