An interesting way to spend Soros' money, dinner with Murdock

It may be a laugh line and they will play it for pub­lic­ity, but its a good cause:

In one of the more clever moments of issue advo­cacy in recent mem­ory, the pro­gres­sive media watch­dog group, Media Mat­ters for Amer­ica, suc­cess­fully won an online auc­tion Thurs­day to have a “friendly lunch” with its long-​time neme­sis, News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch.

The item, which was listed on the site Char­ity Buzz, was billed as a chance to “pro­pose your busi­ness ideas” with the media mogul. The win­ning bid, accord­ing to a Media Mat­ters rep­re­sen­ta­tive, went for $86,000 — the pro­ceeds of which will be sent to The Global Poverty Project.

Hey like I say, they will get a stunt over it but if Media Mat­ters wants to drop $86k of Soros’ money to the Global Poverty Project all well and good.

Do you think that Mur­dock hasn’t han­dled sit­u­a­tions like this before? If they do then their fools, but they will give some red meat for the far left that has lit­tle to cheer about right now.

If you can’t get real wins then stunts will have to do.

The item, which was listed on the site Charity Buzz, was billed as a chance to “propose your business ideas” with the media mogul. The winning bid, according to a Media Matters representative, went for $86,000 — the proceeds of which will be sent to The Global Poverty Project.
