President Obama Zings CNN, MSNBC, Fox News At White House Correspondents' Dinner

Posted: Updated:

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.
