White House Correspondents Dinner sees press hit back at Trump: 'We are not fake news'
The White House Correspondents Dinner is usually an event of good will: the president is roasted, the president roasts back. An opportunity, then, for the press to take a stand against the administration who has done its best to destroy them, as White House Correspondents Association head Jeff Mason told attendees: "We cannot ignore the rhetoric that has been employed by the president about who we are and what we do.

All the best signs from Climate Marches around the world
In Trump's America, marching has become a weekly activity. One week after the massive March for Science, people across the country and around the world, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Richard Branson, took to the streets on Saturday for the People's Climate March. At least 200,000 people marched in D.C., the march's organizers said Saturday afternoon.

CNN (@CNN) April 29, 2017 An event that predates the Trump administration, the Climate March this year is getting a little more attention considering our administration just deleted climate change information from the Environmental Protection Agency's website and, you know, our secretary of state used to run Exxon. The biggest Climate March is set to take place in Washington, D.C., where temperatures were expected to reach near-record highs for late April. Here are some of the best signs from climate marches everywhere so far. Stay hydrated everybody! Honored to join Indigenous leaders and native peoples as they fight for climate justice.
