The news that BuzzFeed will be hosting a party at the same time as the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner is no sweat off Ed Henry’s sack.
“I haven’t heard anything about it to be honest with you,” the WHCA president and Fox News Chief White House correspondent told FishbowlDC. “We’ve got 2,700 people, I think, already confirmed for our dinner and we have people beating down our door still trying to get in. So good luck to anybody else who wants to do another event. But people are dying to get into our event and we’re thrilled because it’s going to raise a lot of money for scholarships.”
BuzzFeed applied for a table at the event but was denied.
Henry’s comment came Thursday at the Newseum where the WHCA and Discovery were hosting a screening of “All the Presidents Men: Revisited,” a documentary about the Watergate affair and the movie it inspired.
A BuzzFeed spokesperson did not have anything to add on the matter.
