A press conference is due in New York tomorrow to announce that MoveOn.org, Common Cause and other organisations are about to follow up their Outfoxed house parties by launching "major legal actions" against Fox News.

Naturally, MoveOn is gearing up for November's presidential election.

But Britain will go to the polls some time next year.

The upswing in the turnout for last month's local elections suggests some British voters are shaking off their apathy and are choosing to exercise their democratic right.

All of which suggests that now would be the perfect time for MoveOn to expand its model for grassroots political participation to this side of the Atlantic.
