Farah Says He Won’t Attend WHCA

WorldNetDaily’s founder and Editor Joseph Farah says he will not attend the WHCA dinner. The WHCA gave the publication two seats, but he says they won’t be using them. Farah broke this news today on “Bloggasm,” a site that, in the same story, wrote about HuffPost’s Arianna Huffington’s dealings with the WHCA and wrote her name like this in the first line of the story: Arriana.

The news of Farah’s refusal to attend the dinner comes on the heels of WND’s filing a lawsuit against the WHCA (go figures if you’re suing the party organizers you might not show up to the party).

An excerpt from Bloggasm:
“Yesterday, the Washington Examiner reported that Arriana Huffington [SIC] was extremely displeased with the White House Correspondents’ Association, the reason being that in its first year attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner the Huffington Post had requested three tables for its guests and only received one.”

And later:

…”One thing is for certain: WND will not be using the two tickets that have been allocated to them. “I’ve told them kindly that I’m not interested in two tickets, and will not accept them, and so, you know, I don’t know what happens. They still have not returned our money.”
