I've no doubt that there is some truth to this, but organizations like Reason Magazine, Mangu/Ward's employer, doesn't just publish articles about lowering taxes, shrinking entitlements and deregulating industry; a ton of energy is spent by libertarian institutions like Reason and the Cato Institute resisting the growth of police power, opposing the drug war, championing gay and immigrant rights and opposing war. For most of these things, drawing a direct line to the financial interests of powerful corporate interests could be done I suppose, but the argument become strained and murky.
