    Half the people speaking at last night’s Trumpless White House Correspondents’ Dinner made a point of telling the President in absentia that “the media is not fake news!” And yet nobody saw the irony of having a fake correspondent from a fake news show from Comedy Central  host the event? Hasan Minjah, posterboy for Muslim Anchor Babies and DreamersNo wonder they don’t know fake news when it bites them in the butt.President Trump, meanwhile, was busy raising the roof in Pennsylvania.Expect MSM to report he drew a small crowd.If you ask me one of the most promising outcomes of the First...

    Problem with that is that their listeners, viewers and readers do not want to be entertained. They want to be truthfully informed. With the bulk of the mainstream media having long ago thrown totally in with the progressive left, should anybody have to guess who won’t be coming to tonight’s annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner? President Donald Trump stuck to his boycott of the event, and it took less than a nanosecond for a highly offended media to come across like the aggrieved party.

    Truth Revolt ^ | 4/25/15 | Caleb Howe Twitter started buzzing just before the President spoke at tonight's White House Correspondents Dinner, claiming that CNN was telling their viewers who wanted the news, particularly about the rioting in Baltimore, that they could totally get that news. From, you know, Twitter. CNN Political Commentator Errol Louis addresses the elephant on the computer screen. "This is always about choices, right? I mean you know, you have to make a decision, what are you gonna do with this two hours of time. And we, you know, CNN made it's decisions, and is sticking to it's plan and so forth," says...
  • Obama: Republicans teaching candidates how to speak with 'sweeties' [women] - Correspondents Dinner

    During the 2008 Presidential campaign, President Obama took some heavy flak for addressing a female factory worker and a woman reporter as "sweeties". Cognizant that female voters might find the crass moniker disrespectful, the Politician-in-Chief quickly called the female reporter and issued an apology on her voice mail saying he was sorry for using the word "sweetie". The President added: "That's a bad habit of mine, I do it sometimes with all kinds of people" - including - as the satirical video below indicates - Michelle Obama. However, despite the President's tactless style of speaking with women, and the need...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is mixing mixed comedy with some early campaigning at the White House Correspondents' Association annual dinner, focusing mainly on Donald Trump. With Trump in attendance, Obama said the billionaire businessman has shown the acumen of a future president, from firing Gary Busey on a recent episode of "Celebrity Apprentice" to focusing so much time on conspiracy theories about Obama's birthplace.

    Look for Washington types such as Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Richard Holbrooke, the U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan. Party crashers were not welcome. After Tareq and Michaele Salahi got through White House gates without invitations to a state dinner, guests had to bring a dinner ticket or printed invitation to attend dinner pre-parties at the Washington Hilton Hotel. Organizers said they were trying to cut down on crowds.

    You may remember the evening of Sept. 29, 2001. On that evening, Rudy Giuliani appeared on Saturday Night Live. It was 18 days after the September 11 attacks. This appearance of the mayor of New York — who had spent almost three weeks comforting a shaken nation, mourning with families of the murdered, and leading — was widely considered a signal: We could laugh again. We needed to laugh. Heaven knows, Giuliani must have needed it as much as anyone. Laughter can be a beautiful thing, a great gift in difficult times. A way to reach those who might not...
