For one night every year, journalists, celebrities and politicians collide for the annual White House Correspondents dinner. This star-studded event is one of Washington’s most eagerly anticipated events – and this year, Yahoo! had front row seats.
Yahoo! News enjoyed its first-ever appearance at the 98th annual White House Correspondents Dinner on April 28th – co-hosting a hugely successful pre-dinner cocktail party with ABC News, and had its first table at the dinner itself. Reporters, editors and executives from the political news powerhouses had the incredible opportunity to mingle with celebrities, politicians and other notables that attended the Yahoo!/ABC party -- from former Republican Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum to California Governor Jerry Brown, the cast of ‘Modern Family’, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Kevin Spacey, Diane Sawyer, and Barbara Walters.
The event, which featured comedian Jimmy Kimmel and President Obama taking turns roasting Washington's political and media elite, was a perfect chance for politicos and politicians alike to let loose and poke fun at each other. Eager for Yahoo! users to share in the fun, Yahoo! News live-tweeted the event and put together an Instragram album, providing a behind-the-scenes look at the festivities.
