Who's right about Education Trust?

There's a clash of views over at the multi-author blog I participate in, Education Policy Blog, after a post by Jim Horn on how Education Trust staffer Amy Wilkins responded to fellow blogger Dan Brown at the Ed in '08 blogger summit, Philip Kovacs wrote about his concerns that Ed Trust was mostly for propaganda, I said that we need better research on the role of philanthropies in education policy, and Jim Horn suggested that we take Rick Hess's term "muscular philanthropy" seriously as the goal of the Gates, Broad, and Walton foundations, but without Hess's positive connotations. Go read, decide who's right, and comment.
