Jon Stewart Shames Newsweek For Their Crazy-Eyed Bachmann Cover


On last night’s Daily Show, Jon Stewart laid into Newsweek’s Editor-In-Chief Tina Brown for their recent cover of Bachmann looking like she was a deer in headlights (Brown, of course, defended the image). You see, Stewart believes that Michele Bachmann is a many number of things, but she is absolutely photogenic, saying “You gotta go pretty far out of the way to find a crappy photo of Michele Bachmann — and you did. Why?”

Stewart continued his dissection of the “picture of a lady that appears to be enchanted by simple math on a blackboard that’s been hung too high,” by calling Tina Brown “petty,” and explaining that his first reaction to the cover went as such: “I look at that picture and think, ‘Isn’t it a little soon to be doing a female remake of The 40 Year Old Virgin?’ That’s not a nice picture.”
