Times To Boycott White House Correspondents’ Dinner

rich_times_white_house_dinn.jpgFrank Rich let a cat out of the bag in the 13th paragraph of his Sunday op-ed:

After last weekend’s correspondents’ dinner, The Times decided to end its participation in such events. But even were the dinner to vanish altogether, it remains but a yearly televised snapshot of the overall syndrome. The current White House, weakened as it is, can still establish story lines as fake as “Mission Accomplished” and get a free pass.

No word on other media outlets (somehow, we doubt Fox News is going to put the kibosh on coverage, even though C-SPAN televises it). But if next year’s host is Rich Little again, the entire press corps would be smart to follow the Times‘ lead.
