Rick Perry Had Dinner With Rupert Murdoch


The GOP front-runner is having quite the New York City trip, dining with Donald Trump (who called him “Jim”) and hanging with the Kardashians amid appealing to the city’s Jewish and Hispanic voters. Last night, Perry’s dinner date was with none other than News Corp. boss (and Fox News owner) Rupert Murdoch, who took the Texas governor to the Post House. Perry said back in July that it was “premature” to judge the CEO in the phone-hacking scandal that just cost Murdoch a fresh $4.7 million. [Sarah Boxer/Twitter, Jeremy W. Peters/Twitter]
