"I know CNN has taken some knocks lately, but the fact is I admire their commitment to cover all sides of a story, just in case one of them happens to be accurate," Obama said. [WATCH VIDEO BELOW]

The president also made other jokes addressed to MSNBC, Fox News, and the History Channel.

THR reported that Obama joked about both Fox News and the History channel in the same quip, mentioning the recent controversy surrounding his alleged resemblance in appearance to the actor who played the devil in the Bible miniseries.

"The History Channel is not here. I guess they were embarrassed about the whole Obama-is-a-devil thing. Of course, that never kept Fox News from showing up. They actually thought the comparison was not fair -- to Satan," the president joked.

About MSNBC, he joked that his former senior campaign advisor David Axelrod took a job as senior political analyst at the cable network and NBC News this February.

 

"Some of my former advisors have switched over to the dark side. For example, David Axelrod now works for MSNBC, which is a nice change of pace since MSNBC used to work for David Axelrod," Obama joked.

The beginning of the White House Correspondents' Dinner was filled with other jokes as well, including one with Conan O' Brien and First Lady Michelle Obama. He even walked in to rap song "All I Do Is Win" by DJ Khaled.
