CNN’s Stelter: If Murdoch Buys CNN, I’ll ‘Eat My New York Post

Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter reported Sunday morning about News Corp owner Rupert Murdoch’s rumored interest in acquiring a large content company like Time Warner, owner of CNN.

“Can you imagine that?” Stelter asked. “The owner of Fox News and the Wall Street Journal owning this news channel? The empire that Ted Turner built? I know many people shudder at that thought. On the other hand, many people, myself included, admire Murdoch’s business judgment, and his ability to sruvive and thrive in this cutthroat business world.”

“Even if Murdoch took control of Time Warner, a very big, big if, I think he’d have to divest CNN as a part of any deal,” Stelter wagered. “I will eat my remote control — in fact, I will eat my copy of the New York Post — if Murdoch becomes the owner of CNN.”

Note that it does not appear that CNN even has a digital subscription to the Wall Street Journal:
