And the beating continues

[source, source]

Among prominent liberal groups, only abortion rights advocates and far-left groups such as MoveOn.org are now opposed to [SCOTUS nominee John] Roberts outright. Others — including some of the most influential environmental, civil rights, and consumer advocacy groups — are critical of him but say they will reserve judgment for now. [emphasis added]

I do believe I see a “far-left” in that paragraph. I had thought that only groups to the left of Pol Pot got that label in Old Media, but there it is, applied to MOVE-ON. In the Boston Globe no less, which is normally liberal even for a major American newspaper. Is there a pattern here?

HRC moves on

[source, source]

Senator Hillary Clinton has confided to associates that she intends to vote FOR Bush Supreme Court nominee John Roberts, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. […]

With her support of Roberts, Clinton ignores pressure from the reactionary-activist wing of the Democrat party.

“She is simply doing what is right for the country, not MOVEON.ORG,” the Clinton insider explained.

The interesting bit here is the off-hand dismissal of MOVE-ON and the implicit statement that what MOVE-ON wants is not good for the country. That’s what you do to fringe groups like the Buchanites, not major fund raisers.
