Politics, pop culture, and self-deprecation

You know, I’ve started to notice that reporters will write about grassroots, internet-based activism that comes from the right, but much less often about those same efforts from the left. If journalists write about MoveOn or the Human Rights Campaign, it’s often in an article expressly about progressive internet activism. But right-leaning organizations and efforts are mentioned in articles like this one, about Alito. Their planned campaign to get him confirmed is mentioned, but not MoveOn’s ongoing campaign opposing him. Why is this?
