We confess: Liz Gorman is a much better photographer than we are. So look to Wonkette (when they do their roundup) for fancier photos than the ones here we have here.
But anyway, The Week magazine celebrated their annual Opinion awards last night at the Georgetown Four Seasons.
VIPs in the house:
Terry McAuliffe (wearing a Hilary button, of course…)
George Stephanopoulos and Alexandra Wentworth
Senator Sheldon Whitehouse
(sorry for who we’re missing…)
Some interesting tidbits:
Ben Bradlee: “Journalism is dying? My ass!” “Keep your faith in newspapers” “Imagine a world without newspapers…you couldn’t take one of those machines (referring to news readers) into the john…”
And during the panel discussion, Harry Evans called on Chris Matthews in the audience to ask a question. Matthews asked, “Why is this room 99% white?” To which Tucker Carlson yelled out, “you’re the whitest.”
