Trouble Brewing in Prom Paradise: WorldNetDaily Suing WHCA

> Update: WHCA President Edwin Chen now commenting:”The association has seen countless and creative efforts to improve one’s circumstances at the dinner; all of them have been futile. This latest ploy will end with the same result.”

WorldNetDaily has filed a lawsuit in Washington accusing the White House Correspondents’ Association of “doing the bidding of the Obama administration in trying to belittle, exclude and irreparably harm” the Internet news outlet, which has carried negative commentary on the President.

The dispute involves WND’s request to purchase three tables at the dinner. They claim they were offered three seats and ultimately one table. FishbowlDC sources say ultimately WND received two seats only. “They don’t have their facts right,” a source close to the dinner explained.

WHCA President Ed Chen, senior White House correspondent for Bloomberg News, declined to comment. He suggested we call WHCA’s lawyer, George Lehner, a partner with Pepper Hamilton LLP.
