It's no secret that Jon Stewart loves to mock CNN, but on Tuesday's episode of The Daily Show, the comedian had something else in mind: a network takeover.
Last night, Stewart addressed the reports that 21st Century Fox CEO Rubert Murdoch made a bid to buy Time Warner for a whopping $80 billion. While the proposal was rejected by the Time Warner Board of Directors, many have speculated that the media mogul, who has been referred to as the "billionaire who won't take no for an answer," will not back down from his offer.
If Murdoch does acquire Time Warner, then he will most likely sell CNN, a subsidiary of the cable giant, as it will compete with his own Fox News.
"Now of course, it [CNN] wouldn't come cheap with analysts saying the network could be worth about $10 billion on the open market," Stewart said. "That's a lot of money for anyone, but not a lot of money for everyone."
As for his solution? Launch a (mock) Kickstarter campaign to buy CNN.
