Get ready for some interesting, toxic partying. The founder and president of Media MattersDavid Brock and Eric Burns – are throwing a book party for Toxic Talk author and left-leaning radio host Bill Press on June 15 at their headquarters in downtown Washington.

The ultra-liberal Media Matters is a logical choice to host Press’s party. Media Matters reps often appear on Press’s show. What’s more, Press used Media Matters materials (we’re sure the toxic kind) for his book.

Naturally, Press has a toxic explanation as to why Media Matters is hosting the soiree: “Because David Brock and Eric Burns are friends. And because I did most of my research from their archives. And because we both drive right-wingers bat shit crazy.”
