Open thread: Politicians, media gather in D.C. to celebrate politicians, media

posted at 7:01 pm on April 27, 2013 by Allahpundit

Ed had his say about the WHCD earlier this afternoon and I’ve had mine, over and over, in various annual threads since 2006. Let me add two thoughts. One: For better and for worse, the atmosphere is different when there’s a Republican in office than when there’s a Democrat. When the GOP holds the White House, there’s an element of suspense that the comedian hired to deliver the keynote will crap all over the president the way Colbert did to Bush in 2006. No chance of that for the next four years, but that means you can watch tonight for the laughs with little fear of feeling annoyed tomorrow. Two: Brokaw’s right that this is a narcissistic freak show, to the point where attendees have had to invent self-deprecating slang for it to distance themselves ironically. I’ll never agree, though, that it poses some sort of threat to the media’s credibility. To repeat a point I made last year when Brokaw started his yearly kvetching about the WHCD:

Does anyone really believe that the vast majority of the public even knows what the WHCD is, let alone has some strong ethical objection to it? In a way, his assumption about the public significance of the event reflects the same sort of Beltway myopia that he’s criticizing.

In fairness to Brokaw, arguably he’s making a more subtle point — not that the public is reacting negatively to the WHCD but rather that the press itself is more apt to cocoon itself in Beltway culture because of sleazy networking and stargazing opportunities like the WHCD. If I thought getting rid of their prom would help peel away that cocoon, I’d take his side. But I don’t. The media is an industry and it’ll have its own industry culture whether or not everyone puts on tuxes one night a year and gladhands the Real Housewives of D.C. or whoever semi-ironically on the red carpet. Pauline Kael once said she didn’t understand how Nixon had won since no one she knew had voted for him. I don’t think nerdprom was her problem.

There are lots and lots and lots of reasons to distrust and dislike the media, especially if you’re a conservative, but I’d bet not one in 100 people surveyed at random would name the WHCD as one of them. Not five in 100 would even know what the WHCD is. To treat this as some sort of problem is, however inadvertently, to minimize their real sins. No one would care about them spending an evening posing for pictures with the “Duck Dynasty” guys if they didn’t need to be browbeaten into covering the Gosnell trial. Have a ball tonight, water-carriers.

The show gets rolling at around 9 or 9:30 ET with Obama and then Conan O’Brien as keynoter, but the red carpet (yes, really) has already begun. If you want to watch any or all of it, it’s airing live right now on C-SPAN. The only really notable attendee I’ve read about today is NRA President David Keene, who’ll be a guest of the Washington Times. Expect plenty of uncomfortable reaction shots from him once O and O’Brien get rolling on the gun-rights lobby.

If the panel were made up of people working for “The Blaze”, they would have concluded Ronald Reagan was the funniest.

C’mon ‘partisan, you’ve got to have a better defense of Obama than “the panel at MS-DNC concluded Obama was funniest.”

When that latest Tonight Show experiment flops Leno probably will be in good practice to flip a middle finger salute faster than one can say pervert Letterman sucks.

Ya know, some times a little fellow is just catching up on the thread and happens upon a comment with a mouth full of water and then there is a mess.
I’ll get you back soon enough.

I have been there, my friend. I’ve been giggling over the song I posted and well, I couldn’t help myself.

This press corps dinner strikes me as being very much in keeping with the Oscars. Both the press corps and the film industry throw themselves lavish, indulgent, parties and pat themselves on the back.

Why? It’s the same reason in both cases.

Because no one else will.

Yeah – exactly……it’s like those groups of guys that show up at the gym, and strut around, practically naked, in front of the mirrors to admire each other’s “flexing”……….

Hey – maybe I shouldn’t GO to those “gyms”……actually, I don’t – just kidding…..but I HAVE been to one like that once…..just once….really….

No, I would say you are like an exquisite tenderloin, hot, rare and juicy.
