Jon Stewart Launches Fake Kickstarter to Buy CNN
With analysts estimating that the news network, often the butt of “Daily Show” jokes, could be worth $10 billion, Jon Stewart has launched a parody campaign to crowdsource the funds.
On the farcical Web page, pledgers are offered various prizes for their contributions. For $25,000, for example, you can “take molly with Fareed Zakaria.” For $1 billion, you can “host a CNN anchor Hunger Games fight to the death.”
