Politics Daily is throwing a birthday party for itself on April 30 at the National Press Club. The party is by invitation only; no party crashers allowed.
It’s not a typical party as D.C. parties go. Editor in Chief Melinda Henneberger and Deputy Editor Carl Cannon are inviting guests to “Join In The Civilogue”.
AOL’s CEO Tim Armstrong will introduce the evening, and explain why AOL is investing in the future by supporting old-school journalism.
Columnists David Corn and Peter Wehner will engage in what organizers are calling a (civil!) debate on “Afghanistan: Where Do We Go From Here?” moderated by Politics Daily military writer David Wood. Religion writer David Gibson will speak on “Pope Benedict XVI and The Gates of Hell: How Will the Catholic Crisis End?” followed by a Q and A.
Immediately following discussion on the “Gates of Hell” will be a cocktail reception. (The image shown here is the one on the e-mail party invitation.) The party, though it coincides with Prom weekend, is not affiliated in any way with the WHCA Dinner.
