Warren Buffett issued a big challenge to Rupert Murdoch during a Tuesday interview.
Buffett has become an enemy of some on the right for his call to increase taxes on the super-rich. The Wall Street Journal editorial page is a prominent non-fan, and wrote an editorial calling on Buffett to release his tax returns.
In response, the billionaire said that he would gladly do so — if the owner of that paper, one Keith Rupert Murdoch, would do the same.
"I think it might be a terrific idea if they would just ask their boss, Rupert Murdoch, and he and I will meet at Fortune, and we'll both give you our tax returns and you can publish them," Buffett told Fortune during an interview. "I'm ready tomorrow morning."
No word yet on whether Murdoch has accepted the dare.
