CNN may skip this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner

BuzzFeed reports CNN is considering skipping this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, citing the Trump White House’s continued demonization of the press.

CNN is still actively discussing internally whether it will ultimately send staffers to the event, which is scheduled for April 29, according to one of these people, BuzzFeed says.

Last year at the dinner, when comedian Larry Wilmore roasted anchor Don Lemon, Lemon responded by flipping him off. Needless to say, that may be the reaction some anchors have with President Trump during his zingers.

3 million viewers watched the WHCD on CNN last year.

“We haven’t made a decision on it yet,” a CNN spokesperson said on whether or not CNN would attend this year’s event.
