The D.C. Chapter of Free Republic invites all FReepers and lurkers in good standing to join us at our 7th annual freep against liberal bias in the media outside the White House Correspondents Association dinner at the Washington Hilton on Saturday, April 30.
This is your chance to take your complaints and encouragement directly to the media bigwigs (and politicos) in person. Over the years, we've engaged in discussions outside the dinner with the likes of Al Franken, Christopher Hitchens, Matt Drudge, Peggy Noonan, Ann Coulter, Chip Reid, James Carville, Joe Scarborough and many others.
Last year, actress Drew Barrymore filmed us for a documentary she was working on.
Two years ago, the Garofalo Awards we presented outside the dinner were featured on Fox & Friends.
This year, we will be presenting the Faux News Awards to those in the media who ginned up news and scandals with very little or no factual basis. The nomination thread for the awards will be posted shortly.
After the freep, we will continue our tradition of going to the Hilton's bar and watching the dinner on C-SPAN while having dinner and drinks.
When: 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, April 30, 2005
Where: The southeast corner of the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and T Street, NW, Washington, D.C.
Bring: Signs and banners.
Parking, Transportation: Limited street parking is available. Pay parking garages are available in the Hilton (enter from 19th St.) and on Florida Ave at 20th St. The Dupont Circle Metro Station (Q St. exit) on the Red Line is the closest Metro station (about three blocks.) to the Hilton.
As always, the D.C. Chapter's rules for protesting will be in effect. Briefly, they are: no violence, no profanity, no racism, no provocations, obey the law and treat all law enforcement officers with respect.
EAGLES UP !!!
I can't be there in person but I'll certainly be there in spirit! Sounds like it will be a blast...:)
D.C. Chapter mega-ping!
We have a lot of fun at this one. This has become D.C.'s version of the Oscars: a star studded night filled with wretched excess and pomposity.
Way to be!
Wretched excess and pomposity bump.
See you there. Hope we can say "Thank you Ralph" to Nader and "Senator Heinz" to Kerry the Poodle.
Will you all bring back pics for us? I hope so! Geez, wish I could go...
BUMP I am so glad you all do this every year! Have a blast :)
I have never regretted living in the "West" all of my life, in Colorado and Texas, until I joined FR!
Between the marches and the protests and such, I miss not being able to participate---there is just so much one can do from Texas if one is of limited funds(which I most certainly am).
Therefore, go and have fun for me and the other Freepers that can't be there!
as much as i miss BEXAR COUNTY, i will miss the DC chapter!
Thanks for the ping, I should be able to make it!
We could just call it "the dan rather award" for excellence in fraudulent reporting.
DC Chapter does the heavy lifting and takes all the arrows. What great role models. Thank you in advance.
Bookmark Bump for later consideration.
If you were only out of the slammer, we could go together.
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my miscellaneous ping list.
