"The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart wants to buy CNN. But he just doesn't know what to do with it yet.
The satirical talk show host admits the cable news show has been terrible for several years and buying it would be the best option. So, he started a website — www.letsbuycnn.com — with a fake Kickstarter logo offering fake rewards a la the crowdfunding site that include being part of CNN's top 21 and taking molly with Fareed Zakaria,
If you pledge $1 billion, expect to "Host a CNN Anchor Hunger Games Fight to the Death."
If you fund the entire project though,Stewart "promises" your very own Martin Savidge Couch Simulator ... whatever that is.
The fake Kickstarter intro reads:
"This $10 billion, all-cash bid for CNN would secure control over a massive television network reaching over 100 million homes in the US alone, which we could then use to rebuild a news organization befitting this proud land. Or more likely we'd use it to make a lot more poop jokes. Either way, you get to watch!
