Who Should Media Matters Founder David Brock Take With Him to Lunch With Rupert Murdoch?


This is going to be awkward: David Brock, the founder of Media Matters, today won an online charity auction to have a “friendly lunch” with News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch, according to an announcement by the group. Under the terms of the deal, which benefited the Global Poverty project, the winner gets to bring five people to lunch with him. Brock paid $86,000 (in Soros money?) for the honor, and is now contemplating who else to invite. Of course, it could hardly get more awkward — Brock’s organization is literally dedicated to battling, discrediting, and all-out heckling Fox News, one of Murdoch’s most high-profile properties. But let’s not give up just yet! What other guests would make this the most painful lunch ever? Keith Olbermann? Ted Turner? Margaret Cho? Michael Wolff? An angry python? Maybe the solution is to bring Glenn Beck and George Soros and finally see who is out to drink who’s blood.
