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!

This is incredibly, incredibly sad.

How many more lives is this mess going to ruin?

As everyone knows, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp media empire has been absolutely devastated since the phone-hacking scandal prompted more investigations into the immoral - and sometimes illegal - practices in which many staffers partook, which has led to News of the World being scrapped and the arrests of eleven current and former employees of The Sun on suspicion of bribery, and now, it appears that it has taken its toll mentally on at least two senior journalists, who have reportedly attempted suicide.
