This last week, Young America's Foundation was attacked by the left-wing media outlets MSNBC and Politico. Thankfully, the Wall Street Journal decided to do actual reporting. In fact, WSJ was the only outlet to actually call us to confirm the facts and get the full story.

Young America’s Foundation was a sponsor of the former senator’s appearance at Missouri State University. Ron Robinson, the foundation’s president, said Mr. Santorum agreed in February 2011 to give the speech – months before he officially launched his presidential bid in June.
The Young America’s Foundation exposes college and high school audiences to conservative ideas, Mr. Robinson said. Because it’s a 501(c)(3), the organization made sure that Mr. Santorum focused his remarks on broad public policy, not on pitching his presidential bid.
“It can’t be a campaign stop,” Mr. Robinson said.
