On Mondays, we look at how the news is filtering through the lens of social media. “The Daily Show” announced this morning that South African comedian Trevor Noah, 31, will succeed Jon Stewart as the Comedy Central show’s host.

Stewart has not yet announced his departure date.


We also look at a new HBO documentary that takes a critical look at Scientology, as the film makes waves and gains acclaim after its weekend debut.

Here & Now’s Robin Young discusses these stories and reactions on social media with Julia Turner, editor-in-chief of Slate.
