President Obama at White House Correspondents' Dinner: Serious Tribute to Boston, West Texas

President Obama took a serious moment out of a scathingly funny speech to honor the people who were affected by recent events in Boston and West Texas at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

Calling out the Boston Globe and NBC's Pete Williams for their exceptional journalism during the intense events of the Boston bombings, President Obama noted on the importance of public service as a remedy to the increasing cynicism of our times.

His poignant remarks highlighted the everyday individuals who have been affected, and received a standing ovation from the crowd.
