Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart Tuesday scolded Newsweek for selecting an unflattering photo of Rep. Michele Bachmann for their most recent cover.
Conservatives’ favorite thing to do is complain about the mainstream media, Stewart noted. “And you know the worst part about when the right complains about the mainstream media? When their argument contains a kernel of truth.”
“Case in point, this week’s Newsweek cover which seems to have captured Michele Bachmann at the exact moment she’s sees the Amazing Rebalto turn his hat into a dove.”
“Look, Newsweek, that’s a shitty picture of Michele Bachmann. And, clearly, not an accidentally shitty picture of Michele Bachamann. Cause you can say a lot of things about Michele Bachmann — a lot of things — but here is what you can’t say about Michele Bachmann, that she is not photogenic,” he continued.
“Be honest, Newsweek, you used that photo in a petty attempt to make Michele Bachmann look crazy and that’s what her words are for… You want a photo that makes her seem a little off? Make it out of her words!”

Trump wants Americans to watch interview where he broke federal law by soliciting foreign election help: ‘Enjoy the show!’
Despite widespread criticism, President Donald Trump on Saturday stood by his comments to George Stephanopoulos -- and hyped an upcoming broadcast of the interview.
"I enjoyed my interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News," Trump claimed.
"So funny to watch the Fake News Media try to dissect and distort every word in as negative a way as possible. It will be aired on Sunday night at 8:00 P.M., and is called, “President Trump: 30 Hours” (which is somewhat misleading in that I personally spent only a small fraction of that time doing interviews. I do have a few other things to do, you know!)," he continued.
Utah Republican is in deep trouble after trying to defend Trump’s breaking of the law
President Donald Trump's poor standing in Utah could cause big electoral problems for one of his loudest defenders in the state.
Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) said Trump would be "foolish" if he did not illegally accept election help from foreign adversaries.
On Saturday, Stewart was blasted by former CIA officer Evan McMullin.
McMullin was born in Provo, attended Brigham Young University, is Mormon and a also prominent conservative critic of Trump.
In 2016, McMullin ran against Trump as an Independent and received 21.3 percent of the vote in Utah during the general election. Trump also had problems in Utah during the Republican primary, receiving only 14 percent of the vote.
Trump ‘will not leave his office if he narrowly loses in 2020’: Conservative columnist issues dire warning
President Donald Trump will fight to remain in power regardless of the outcome if the 2020 election is close, a conservative columnist warned on Saturday.
Andrew Sullivan blasted Trump in New York magazine, honing in on the commander-in-chief's lying.
"For Trump, lying is central to his disturbed psyche, and to his success. The brazenness of it unbalances and stupefies sane and adjusted people, thereby constantly giving him an edge and a little breathing space while we try to absorb it, during which he proceeds to the next lie," he wrote.
