Washington is heating up for the big bash, the White House Correspondents Dinner and the annual Garden Brunch to be held on Saturday, April 29th. You can whet your appetite for all things WHCD and Garden Brunch by catching up on some of our podcasts and stories from previous years.
“It’s about an opportunity to lift up good journalism, celebrate up-and-coming journalism, and celebrate the First Amendment—that’s what we’ll be doing this year. And we do encourage our member organizations to bring as many journalists as they can, because that’s what the dinner is about. It’s also about giving journalists a chance to visit with the sources they cover.”
