How to Watch the White House Correspondents' Dinner Online, No Cable Required

Tonight, the White House will host the last Correspondents’ Dinner of President Barack Obama’s administration. Here’s how to watch it online, even if you don’t have cable.

The Correspondents Dinner begins at 7:30PM ET/4:30PM PT. The big draw of these dinners is usually when a comedian gets to present a roast of the President’s administration.
