NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - Jon Stewart says the worst part about conservative complaints of media bias is when they contain "a kernel of truth" -- and that conservatives have a point about Newsweek's unflattering Michele Bachmann cover.
The cover describes her as "The Queen of Rage." Stewart called Newsweek out on Tuesday's "The Daily Show" for using cheap attempts to undercut the Minnesota representative and Republican presidential candidate.
He mocked the magazine's statement that it ran the photo to capture the way she has galvanized Iowa voters.
"I get it, Newsweek," Stewart said. "You put in 'The Queen of Rage' juxtaposed with a picture of a lady that appears to be enchanted by simple math being done on a blackboard that's been hung too high. Or maybe it's a child thinking of cake!.

...and you was right!
Concentrate this. Say it over and over like a mantra. Maybe you'll begin to comprehend.
OK, but it’s people like Stewart, or whatever his real name is, and his viewers that elected Zero. He should STFU!
This sudden, worthless outrage seems as phony as hell.
Anyone who thinks Stewart may have had a moment of class--just google up "Northwestern University 2008 Jon Stewart" and watch the youtube of Stewart screaming "F--- You, Sarah Palin!" over and over. Look at his face and the raging hate. And this guy has small children!!
He's just an awful, stupid, evil SOB. Unfortunately, a lot of young people think he's Cool.
I watched Stewart maybe a few minutes flipping through channels and the main thing I noticed is everything he says is based on "irony".
Remember this tool and the other guy couldn't produce a show during the writer strike because like the trash in the White House they rely on a teleprompter.
LOL, GOOD ONE!!!
I don’t know who still reads Newsweak or Time magazine. I rarely even see them lying around anywhere. The check out lane in the supermarket is all hollyweird faces.
They are irrelevant. Anyone who does read them is already an Obama voter and probably just looks at the pictures.
Otherwise,,we need something to fill the recycle bins with.
Many miss the real problem. The media isn’t a liberal or conservative mouthpiece. They are inciters.
The media is all about creating divisive anger amongst the populace. With every percentage increase in anger and partisanship they make billions more in profit from political ads, from their pundits and eyeballs that give them more advertising. The new corporate media from Fox to CNN to Newsweek have done a huge disservice to all of us Americans because of their profit desire.
If the media was really interested in informing and making the USA a better country, they’d be exposing corruption and the crony rotten deal making that goes on with politicians of all stripes and with global interests.
Bumping your post to catch this video at home.
I’ve never watched his show, but have seen his interviews on FOX. He does have a strong following though.
Serious question here:
Weren’t Jon Stewart and Anthony Weiner roomates once?
Anybody know if this is true?
And a lot of late baby boomers think he’s the ultimate in cool and is credible for the news.
I saw the flashes of red in his eyes on the Chris Wallace interview. It was truly scary like seeing Lord Voldemort. Without his fawning audience who laugh at every word out of his mouth, you can see the real guy.
You’re giving him way too much credit. He has seen nothing and changed not a bit in his viewpoint.
He’s just smart enough to toss in the occasional (and usually meaningless) sop to the right to try to retain a smidgen of credibility.
Don’t be fooled by this fool.
Stewart was dating Weiner’s roommate, or something like that.
The press blew it up, but Steward definitely white-washed the Weiner thing by making it more about comedy than politics. If it were reversed, he wouldn’t be complementing the Republican on his fantastic abs and youthful appearance.
He added: "Shame on you, Newsweek. And your editor, Tina Brown," before posting the least flattering Brown photo he could find.
First of all, my gaydar went off because of all his effeminate mannerisms. But I've been told he's not a homosexual.
Occasionally he can be funny, but not enough laughs to watch his show.
Total content of his show is about 22 minutes a day, just four days a week. Of that 22 minutes, only about half is his opening monologue. And for that, he has dozens of Ivy League writers.
They call it "snark" but his shtick is just snide. Demeaning ridicule, with lots of f***ings and sh*ts. His audience is particularly repulsive, howling and hooting and applauding rather than laughing. Reminds me of the Cool Table in high school where everyone wanted to get on the good side of the Mean Kid so they wouldn't get made fun of with the dorks and the jocks.
And the rest of Comedy Central is just an overflowing toilet. Of course, I used to love Red Skelton and Carol Burnett. Nothing like that, anymore.
But Stewart is important, and all this "I don't watch him" is not the way to bring him down.
Truly, I don't believe Obama would be in office without Stewart, since he managed to get all these mouth-breathing, basement-dwelling stoners to go to the polls.
I know people who subscribe to Newsweak, but, unfortunately, I have contact with liberals.
What Stewart is really saying is “Don’t make your bias so obvious, Newsweak (intentional mispelling to reflect the truth)”.
Jon’s doing better than the proverbial broken clock - he’s also defended Sarah Palin - and he’s taken on members of the MSM for us. For a liberal that takes balls.
My BIL watches him every night and agrees with him.
Why are you angry about a person defending us against a biased media? Use your anger against a liberal..
not safe for work
Look at the eyes. And he has two small children. This is their daddy, a mean, filthy-minded and potty-mouthed punk.
No Jon....stay in your corner...YOU SHALL NOT PASS!
That was a veiled hit piece on Michele, even though it did contain some truth and funny moments.
Better than getting news from what passes for “news” shows these days, though....
What a phony Stewart is.
My 50ish sister-in-law for one. She's a hip one alright. It just occurred to me - she might be going through a mid-life crisis. She's changed a lot lately.
The only Google hit is this thread.
“I thought Barney Frank was the Queen of Rage
No just a raging queen.”
I’d like to nominate this one for Comeback of the Week!
Thank you for your kind reply.
I made an error—you should use the search on youtube. And the URL is several posts back.
He's the Queen of Wage.
