At the height of the 2011 collective bargaining protests, Buffalo Beast Editor Ian Murphy made the billionaire Koch Brothers a household name with his now-infamous prank phone call to Gov. Scott Walker. Walker speaks at length about being duped in his new book Unintimidated but Murphy disputes some of the key claims made in the Governor’s new book. Murphy tells In Our Backyard’s Rebekah Wilce that Walker unfairly blames his staff and “basically lies” when recounting their 20-minute phone conversation.
