WH Correspondents’ Dinner Celebrates the Death of Journalism This Weekend

CNS News

 "The White House Correspondents' Association Dinner is Saturday night, and the supposed reason it is held is to raise money for journalism scholarships.  But as Patrick Gavin wrote at Politico, “So why, then, does the Association only dole out around $100,000 in scholarships annually when some of the richest people in the world are at their dinner?”  Good question.

"Gavin made a movie about the most excessive dinner, which is not just a dinner but a three and a half day weekend of partying by politicians, journalists, Hollywood celebrities, and power brokers in the nation’s capital.  “Nerd Prom” is supposed to shock audiences about the extravagance and depravity that Washington, D.C. burps up every year.

. . . 
 "The president's attitude, and his lawlessness, has lulled journalism to sleep at a time when they were supposed to act as our alarm. Meanwhile, they are celebrating and congratulating themselves this weekend, and then they will go back to sleep.
