Jon Stewart Wants To Buy CNN & He Needs Your Help! Check Out His 'Totally Real' $10 Billion Kickstarter Campaign!

Filed under: Jon StewartTV NewsBusiness BlitzHIGHlariousFunnyGIFs

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!

Why?

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!

Jon Stewart's Got Beyoncé's Back! Watch Him Defend Her On The Daily Show HERE!

stewartbeyonce 618x400

While Bill O'Reilly thinks that Beyoncé's music is "libertine" in nature, Jon Stewart (and most level-headed people) realize that a grown woman celebrating her married sexuality is actually pretty AH-Mazing.

In a segment aptly called Beywatch, Jon took on Bill's criticism that Queen Bey is a bad influence, and basically tore apart him apart!

Our favorite part? After showing a clip of Bill suggesting that Bey could be on Broadway, Jon comes up with a couple of casting options for Beyoncé!

Ch-ch-check out Jon's defense of Beyoncé…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Wait…Penis Pumps Are Covered By Medicare?! So Why Are Republicans Outraged By Birth Control Being Included?! Watch The Daily Show’s Report!

samantha bee daily show penis pump doodle

Here’s something we bet you didn’t know…

Over the last five years, Medicare has spent more than $172 million on penis pumps for men with erectile dysfunction.

That’s right. Your tax dollars are being spent on making sure your grandpa can get a boner!

So why then aren't conservatives in Congress up in arms about giving out these free dick-hardening devices?

After all, they’ve been arguing for months now over the Affordable Healthcare Act’s contraceptive mandate that would provide birth control to women!

Leave it to the Daily Show to break down this double standard!

Correspondent Samantha Bee investigated why Washington lawmakers are all for penis pumps but don’t think the government should foot the bill for women’s BC.

Oh that’s right, because the vast majority of them are old men!

A gender injustice that sucks harder than the contraption stuck on Sam’s face!

Press PLAY (below) to watch her report that will have you both laughing and crying at the state of American politics!

The Daily Show Almost Causes An International Incident In Russia! Watch The Cold War Almost Start All Over Again HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsGIFs

868

We might have to increase our DEFCON level like ASAP.

The Daily Show sent correspondent Jason Jones over to Russia (or as he basically calls it, "America with a f*cked up alphabet") in a Winter Olympics segment that almost reignited the Cold War.

At one point in his Moscow trip, Jason actually talks with former President of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, and holy glasnost and perestroika! Things got tense!

Mikhail instantly seemed like he wasn't having any of his interview with Jason:

“Who asked for this meeting? If you bring cameras in here again, I will put you against the wall.”

Oh, Mikhail! What a prankster! CAN SOMEONE CALL OUR EMBASSY IN MOSCOW NOW?! WE NEED TO EXTRACT JASON!

But seriously that was actually the most terrifying thing we've ever seen. However, just like opening a Russian doll, there was even more to this strange interview.

After being questioned about whether or not he could put back the Berlin Wall, Mikhail Gorbachev eventually lost his patience with Jason, grabbed his finger, and let Jason know that the one-on-one was done-and-done:

"Okay, I've had enough of this. Let's wrap it up."

Whoa, check out the KGB skills on Mikhail, right?

While you wipe the cold sweat from your brow knowing that we narrowly avoided mutually assured destruction, ch-ch-check out the segment…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Jon Stewart HIGHlariously Calls Out Hypocrites "Supporting" Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson!! Watch It HERE!!

Filed under: Jon StewartTV NewsGay Gay GayHolidazeReality TVGIFs

Jon Stewart outraged

LOLOLz!!

Leave it to The Daily Show to point out the blatant hypocrisy in the most hilarious way ever!

Unless you're living under a rock, you've probably heard all about Phil Robertson's homophobic and racial remarks, which ended in his suspension from the popular reality show Duck Dynasty on A&E.

Well, as he is known to do, Jon Stewart decided to tackle the issue on his show, and he did it in the best way possible!

He showed how conservatives are jumping at the opportunity to defend Phil's first amendment rights to say what he believes, since it's free speech and all that.

He ALSO pointed out that many of those same people are forcing their opinion on the whole "Christmas vs Holidays" word war and how they INSIST it's Christmas time and are not even open to calling them the Holidaze!

Sounds pretty hypocritical to us! Thankfully John called them out in the AH-MAZE segment!

We love it!

Ch-ch-check out the all the AWESOME in the clip…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Jennifer Lawrence Makes Fun Of Jon Stewart's "Random" Interview Skills! Watch The HIGHlarious Interview HERE!

Usually it's Jon Stewart grilling his guests and not the other way around!

On her very last interview as part of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire tour, which has been more grueling than a Victory Tour, Jennifer Lawrence stopped by The Daily Show.

And that's when things got weird…weirdly HIGHlarious that is.

At one point, Jon showed JLaw a picture of a young Helen Mirren saying that he thought Jennifer looked a lot like her!

That's when Jennifer called out Jon's random, unpredictable interview style, and said that producers on the show had told her in advance that Jon (unlike Caesar Flickman) wouldn't know much about the movie or her!

Of course, the resulting interview is hysterical, and worth a watch! Heck, it's probably worth Plutarch Heavensbee's watch it's that good!

Ch-ch-check out the interview…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
