Hypocrits Attend Radio TV Correspondents Dinner

Radio and TV Correspondents dinner is evidence of out-of-touch (and worse) media.

How much do you want to bet Lou Dobbs did not attend this function? Dobbs has been nonstop covering the travesty of the wrongful prosecution of ramos and Compean. don't think he'd stomach for one moment being in the same room as dozens upon dozens of so-called investigative reporters cavorting with Carl Rove and George W. Bush.

Fox 'n Friends showed clips all morning from the extravagant dinner, and not one of the trio said hey - there's that little matter of the two border patrol agents who are languishing in prison for 11 and 12 years when 100 plus Congressmen are questioning how the prosecution of the pair was handled. What's up with that? Nope, all morning not one question from Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and whoever was sitting in for former beauty queen, Gretchen Carlson.

What honest hard-working investigative journalist would spend any amount of time at the function when there are unresolved questions about the Ramos and Compean prosecution and conviction amounting to the number of Mexican trucks about to be unleashed across the NAFTA superhighway?

Bet attendees were just giddy with all the oh ah secrecy. What babies. What idiots.

Radio/TV Correspondents dinner surprise
Washingtonians are eagerly awaiting Wednesday’s Radio & TV Correspondents dinner at the Washington Hilton, but event organizers are tight-lipped about the evening’s top entertainment.

“It is very different,” Fox News Washington Bureau Chief Brian Wilson tells Yeas & Nays. “It’s never been done before. It’s a little outside the box, and people will talk about it for 20 years to come.”

So secretive is the entertainment that Wilson hasn’t even let his executive committee in on the secret (Wilson serves as vice chairman of the Capitol Hill Radio/TV Correspondents’ Association). Although Wilson did try to get Sacha Baron Cohen (aka Borat) for the event, Cohen’s scheduling difficulties got in the way.

The national anthem will be sung by country star Ricky Skaggs, and the evening will feature the debut of a new cartoon video. The video will parody the state of television journalism and include such cartoon appearances as Anderson Cooper, Geraldo Rivera, Larry King and even Wilson himself. More than 2,400 guests are expected at the dinner, and President Bush will make his first appearance at the dinner since 2004...

Fun, fun, fun
