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.
