Yesterday we reported the “grumbling” over ABC News’ packed White House Correspondents Association Dinner guest list. We just received NBC and CBS’ list — they’re not too shabby either.
Some big names for NBC: Whoopi Goldberg (of ABC’s The View), Denis Leary (an F/X network star) and Warren Buffett.
Some big names for CBS: Colin Powell, D.C. mayor Adrian Fenty and country star Brad Paisley.
