The first "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner" got off to a special start Saturday night. Instead of kicking off the show herself, host Samantha Bee let everyone's favorite fictional press secretary do the honors.

Allison Janney returned to the podium as her "West Wing" character, C.J. Cregg. There, she answered questions about the "Full Frontal" host's event and dealt with some of the changes in the media that have taken place since the political drama ended its run in 2006. The issues are bigger than now taking questions from reporters attending via Skype, for example. She ended up giving an impassioned speech about how real journalism is being ruined by "a morally bankrupt gang of racist bloggers, anarchists, Dominionists, radio hosts, and rancid women-haters."

Watch C.J. make her triumphant return below, plus confirm that Bee is a witch.

"Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
