Jon Stewart throws conservatives a bone

He actually attempts to come across as genuine here as he skewers Tina Brown and Newsweek for their recent cover of Michele Bachmann:

Listen, I tend to enjoy Stewart’s bits and I’ve defended him, somewhat, before… but I’m wondering if this bit here wasn’t simply Stewart attempting to placate conservatives… somewhat… I mean the opening wasn’t exactly flattering now was it?

Looking for your feedback.  Was Stewart really giving Newsweek some shrift here or was he just throwing you and me a bone?
