President Barack Obama began his 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner speech Saturday night by taking a few stabs at CNN, MSNBC and Fox News.
Obama said that although he was happy to be at the party, he was still a bit jet lagged from his recent trip to Malaysia.
"The lengths we have to go to to get CNN coverage these days," he said, slamming the network for its non-stop coverage of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight. "I think they're still searching for their table."
Next up was MSNBC. Obama called out the network for its fallen ratings in recent months.
"MSNBC is here," he began. "They're a little overwhelmed. They’ve never seen an audience this big before."
But perhaps the network Obama devoted most of his jokes to was Fox News.
The president took a shot at Fox News for its outrage and criticism of him after his appearance on "Between Two Ferns" in March.
"To be fair, I am not the first person on television between two potted plants," Obama said, pointing to a photo of "Fox & Friends'" Elisabeth Hasselbeck seated between her co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade.

Republicans can be criticized for not doing more to address health care reform. But it's not an easy undertaking. The Democrats rejected HillaryCare at one time which was similar to ObamaCare.
What we have now is a partisan tax law that gives too much power over our health care to the federal government, the IRS, politicians and bureaucrats with all the red tape.
If ever there was a time for both sides to sit down and compromise on a mutually doable health care reform, the time was in 2009. Both sides were prepared to come to the table with solutions that were long overdue and both sides could live with. The Democrats blew it.
Once again, you prove yourself to be a total idiot.
Hilary's plan was NOTHING like Obamacare. In FACT, the Republican response to Hilary's plan was exactly what we have today ad Obamacare. It was dreamt up by the Heritage Foundation, and included a mandate. Newt Gingrich supported it.
Now, please tell us all what the GOP proposed, or brought to the table in 2009 regarding healthcare.
Your parrot ed comments about to et reform are plain stupid and in REALITY have already been proven to have ZERO effect on the cost of health care in states that have ALREADY adopted tort reform, like Texas.

Cliven Bundy's Forces Have Apparently Laid Siege to the Local Community: What Would Happen if an Armed Black "Militia" Decided to Harass a Town Full of White People?
Democrat Congressman Stephen Horsford, who happens to be African-American, has requested that local law enforcement intervene and stop Bundy's armed hooligans from causing mayhem in and around Bunkerville, Nevada.
I offer the obvious counter-factual: what if a white Republican congressman wrote an open letter to local law enforcement demanding that they do their jobs and stop a group of black or brown insurrectionists from brandishing weapons, setting up checkpoints on public roads, and harassing white people?
Moreover, if Fox News and the Right-wing media were laid out on their collective fainting couch by two members of a group called "The New Black Panthers", they whose "crime" was having the temerity to stand outside of a polling area while holding sticks and looking "mean", what madness would ensue if Bundy and his brigands were people of color (or even white "liberals" or "progressives")?
The feeble response by the federal and state government to Cliven Bundy's welfare king revolt is both fascinating and important because it is one more example of how white skin privilege, Right-wing populist authoritarianism, conservatism, and white supremacy have helped to create a protected class of people in the United States.
Privilege consists of all those day-to-day things that a given person does not have to think about.
In the context of Cliven Bundy and the rise of the White Right in the Age of Obama, white privilege consists of the freedom for white conservative protesters and militia members to point guns at federal law enforcement agents--and to do so with the reasonable expectation that you will not be shot dead.
Moreover, if said white conservative was shot dead for brandishing a weapon and/or threatening the life of a federal law enforcement agent, white privilege almost guarantees that they will become a martyr and hero for movement conservatism.
White men like Cliven Bundy and his ilk can commit acts of domestic terrorism, shoot up schools, or openly defy the legitimacy and authority of the country's first black President (and Attorney General--this latter point is central and critical to the White Right's histrionics in the Age of Obama) and there will be no national discussion about Whiteness and White Masculinity. Why? They are just individual outliers who in the (White) popular imagination tell us nothing about "the ways of white folks".
Like Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi mind trick in Star Wars: A New Hope, in such instances, Whiteness tells its owners and adherents that "there is nothing to see here, move along".
