GOP Threatening TV Stations for Running MoveOn Ads That Expose GOP Sleaze

By Brian Zick
Jay Jochnowitz, in The Albany Times Union reports that "U.S. Rep. John Sweeney has gotten one of the region’s best known lawyers to ask TV stations to pull a brutal MoveOn.Org ad against the congressman."

MoveOn's criticism of Sweeney - and his threat against the media in response - is only the latest instance of what has become now a routine GOP tactic in trying to suppress campaign opposition, as recently reported by In These Times' editor Joel Bleifuss, in his article on MoveOn's “Caught red-handed” TV ads.
