Jon Stewart Should Know Better

On the Daily Show last Thursday, in Jon Stewart’s Chess News Roundup, the board is set up wrong in the image (90 degrees off). A white square should be in the lower right corner.

As can be seen in the image, the lower right square is black. There are other mistakes as well. Although the white queen is correctly to the left of its king, it is on a black square instead of being on its own color. This is because the orientation of the board is wrong.

Here is the correct setup.
