Press Loves Itself at Correspondent's Dinner

   Saturday night and my plans ?  Watch the President's speech at the Correspondent's dinner...That's the odd fusion of journalism and the Kardashians.
    I am watching the CNN run-up and it's all red carpet journalism, which is to say, it's not journalism.
     This self serving dinner is also likely to dominate tomorrow's news. It would take something really big to drive this event off page one....Like World War III.....Which might at least make it below the fold as the press preens for itself at Mr. Obama's last comedy routine.

Was Cindy Habeeb there? I'll bet there were single people attending. And you can't just turn your head and ignore such a thing.

Watched 30 or so minutes, totally boring this year.

I saw a few minutes of fox talking about it. They hit the nail on the head when they said Wilmore filled his purpose, to be less funny than Obama.

This Wilmore dope is simply not funny and talentless. Jon Stalwart was a bleeding heart libtard, but at least he was clever and occasionally funny. But Wilmore is about as funny as Rachel Maddow. Which is to say he is very funny, but not for the reasons he thinks.
