Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” is a force of nature, laughter, politics and news in this country. A remarkable number of Americans cite it as a major source of news.

Right in the middle of it is “senior correspondent” Samantha Bee. With microphone, camera and comedic acting skills, she puts all kinds of newsmakers in all kinds of ridiculous conversations – and somehow we learn plenty from that. And we laugh.

Now she’s telling her story. It’s pretty wacky.

This Hour, On Point: life and "The Daily Show," with “senior correspondent” Samantha Bee.
