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.
