Accuracy in Media

NBC’s Andrea Mitchell called for an apology to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders after comedian Michelle Wolf “grossly insulted” her at the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday.

The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman complimented Sanders for taking the abuse and not walking out as she had every right to do.

Instead of issuing an apology White House Correspondents Association president Margaret Talev issued the following statement on Twitter saying that Wolf’s performance which was “not in the spirit” of their mission which was to unify and not to divide people.

The dinner which is supposed to raise money for journalism scholarships has come under increasing criticism over the last decade as it has become more of a race between news organizations to try and attract the biggest celebrity names and less about journalism itself.

Trump, who has not attended the dinner since his election, called it “dead” after Saturday’s fiasco.
