‘Daily Show’ Gives Teary Farewell To Correspondent Samantha Bee (VIDEO)

On Thursday night, “The Daily Show” said goodbye to its longest-serving correspondent and member of “The Best F#@king News Team,” Samantha Bee.

“We’ve been down this road a few times this year, each time it’s not easy,” host Jon Stewart began.

After rolling a tape of some of Bee’s segments from her reign, Bee came onstage briefly, teary-eyed, and gave a bow.

Bee came on the show in 2003, a transplant from Canada. She specialized in a kind of Socratic method, feigning ignorance while allowing her subjects to embarrass themselves.

Bee’s husband and fellow “Daily Show” alum Jason Jones departed earlier this year. Stewart himself is slated to leave on Aug. 6.
