Jon Stewart announces $10 billion parody Kickstarter to buy CNN

Jon Stewart has a long, playful, and antagonistic history with CNN, but his relationship with the 24-hour news channel could change dramatically if Stewarts latest plan pans out: raising $10 billion to buy the network. Stewart isnt actually trying to buy CNN — Keep in mind, he says, we need ten-billion dollars — but he did announce a fake Kickstarter campaign to do so on his show last night, even launching a website in support of it. Fans of Fareed Zakaria and party drugs will also be interested. Stewarts parody campaign comes in response to Rupert Murdoch and 21st Century Foxs attempts to purchase Time Warner.
