Jon Stewart Wants Your Help to Buy CNN
Rupert Murdoch’s failed bid to buy Time Warner and CNN for $80 billion got Comedy Central’s funnyman thinking. “That’s a lot of money for anyone, but not a lot of money for everyone,” Stewart told viewers, launching his parody Kickstarter campaign to buy the news network. “Let’s buy it and do something with it,” Stewart said. “We’re not sure what yet” … maybe “poop jokes.” Letsbuycnn.com isn’t really collecting funds, but it’s certainly giving Murdoch a run for his money.
