Reliable Source Attends Salahi Party and Gets Tossed

Having to crash a Salahi party? It’s unthinkable. Well, until last night.

WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger , who co-writes The Reliable Source, has been relentlessly covering Tareq and Michaele Salahi over the past several months. She tried to attend a “Hollywood vs. Bollywood” party Thursday night, where she knew the party crashing couple would be.

Turned out Argetsinger was told she could come, and then told she couldn’t come. She purchased tickets and went — and was thrown out (money refunded).

Read the account here.

Update: Meanwhile, Politico lands an interview with the party crashing couple. Will the crashers attend the WHCA dinner and parties? They’re not answering.

Update: Argetsinger got tossed from the party; not the Reliable Source’s other half, Roxanne Roberts. FBDC incorrectly stated that earlier.

Fruitcake Doesn’t Have to Imhibit Fair Reporting

WaPo’s Reliable Source’s Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts did just that for their item this morning on Rep. Earl Blumenauer’s (D-Ore.) fruitcakes. They even went so far as to have WaPo’s food critic Tom Sietsema try the cake.

The verdict from all? “Two thumbs up.”

We believe them, but fruitcake just never looks appetizing (as evidenced by our picture here).
