WHCA Not Pleased With Wolfe's Performance
The White House Correspondents’ Association has joined in on the criticism of comedian Michelle Wolf — releasing a statement on Sunday, denouncing her routine.
“Last night’s program was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honoring civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people,” said WHCA President Margaret Talev.
“Unfortunately, the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit of that mission.”
Talev, a reporter for Bloomberg News, wrote that many journalists in attendance on Saturday night for the annual correspondents’ dinner reached out to her and expressed their “dismay” with Wolf’s monologue, which was widely panned by people on both sides of the aisle.
