"Saturday Night Live" cast member Cecily Strong taught the journalists at the 2015 White House Correspondents' Dinner an important lesson about covering Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Strong, who hosted the dinner, asked the journalists in the room to stand up and raise their right hand, and instructed them to repeat after her.

"I solemnly swear... not to talk about Hillary's appearance... because that is not journalism," Strong said.

And there you have it: the journalists of America have sworn to produce 2016 coverage free of sexism. Thanks, Cecily!
