The Hill Drops Out of Future White House Correspondents’ Dinners Due to Michelle Wolf Act

The Hill will no longer participate in the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, according to a letter from the publication’s chairman James Finkelstein to the association’s executive director, Steven Thomma. Finkelstein cited the controversial jokes made by comedian Michelle Wolf at Saturday’s event as the reason for the decision, writing that “major reforms” are needed by the association.

In the letter, Finkelstein quotes the association’s website that reads “We share the belief, held by our country’s Founders and enshrined in the First Amendment, that an independent news media is vital to the health of the republic.”

“We all agree,” he writes. “But that also means that the dinner must be non-partisan and done without hostility and personal animus toward the party that occupies the White House — regardless of who is in power.”

Some people are already saying there should be another event like this which appeals to conservatives. It could actually happen, too.
