Fighting evil with crazy.
In response to the news that Rupert Murdoch is attempting to buy Time Warner Cable, which owns CNN, Jon Stewart has announced a plan for a Kickstarter to raise 10 billion dollars in order to buy the cable network. Is it a joke? Sure, but only slightly more so, and considerably less obscene, than the idea of Rupert Murdoch owning Time Warner Cable. As Stewart put it, "The guy owns over 120 newspapers and media outlets. If he buys Time Warner, news will just be 'shit Rupert Murdoch thinks'."
