There could soon be a major media shakeup in the world of cable news!
Billionaire Rupert Murdoch is hoping to add Time Warner to his already massive media empire. The 83-year-old Australian tycoon made a bid to buy the company this week but if the deal does go through, CNN will have to find a new parent company!
Because Murdoch also own News Corp, which is the company that runs CNN’s rival FOX News!
With CNN soon to be up for sale, there’s already a very interested buyer. And his name is Jon Stewart!
On last night’s Daily Show, Jon informed his audience about the potential sale and asked for their help!
He wants YOU to donate to the ‘Let’s Buy CNN’ Kickstarter campaign, aiming to raise $10 billion!
That’s how much analysts expect the cable news channel to go for and Jon wants to make sure he can afford to buy the ever-failing network that is so often panned on his show!
Okay well, no, he doesn’t ACTUALLY want to buy it. But if this Kickstarter was real, here are some of the prizes potential donors would get!
Like a $10 pledge will get your face in a 21 box on CNN!
Or a $25,000 donation that will earn you a night of rolling on Molly with Fareed Zakaria!
And if you really want to help out, you can just fork over a billion bucks and Jon will arrange a Hunger Games style death match between all of the CNN hosts and anchors!
That’s easy. Wolf Blitzer wins.
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious clip (below) and start saving your money! Because together, we can buy CNN!
