Heritage impact

Just as The Heritage Foundation ranked first in followers on every major social media platform but YouTube last year, it has done so yet again in 2022. Forbes contributor Alejandro Chafuen has been ranking free-market think tanks based on their social media performances for almost a decade now, and Heritage continues to lead the way.

A recent National Rifle Association article on the spike in violent crime across America highlighted an incident that went viral online after Democratic Senate Judiciary Chairman Dick Durbin interrupted Heritage Fellow Amy Swearer as she was testifying about the horrific consequences of soft-on-crime left-wing prosecutors in America’s biggest cities.
