AP Reporter Rips White House Correspondents’ Dinner as Sean Spicer Calls Out WHCA Board Members for ‘Disgrace’

South Carolina based Associated Press reporter Meg Kinnard ripped the White House Correspondent’s Association Dinner Saturday night for making it harder for reporters in red states to work and be trusted there. The dinner featured vile personal attacks by comedienne Michelle Wolf on senior White House officials Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway.

Meg Kinnard, “If the #WHCD dinner did anything tonight, it made the chasm between journalists and those who don’t trust us, even wider. And those of us based in the red states who work hard every day to prove our objectivity will have to deal with it.”

Sanders’ predecessor first Trump White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who attended the dinner, slammed the Correspondents’ dinner as a “disgrace” and called out WHCA board members in a series of tweets.

“Tonight’s #WHCD was a disgrace”

Wolf mockingly responded to Spicer, “Thank you!”

Spicer then called out the board members of the White House Correspondents’ Association.

“The leadership of #WhiteHouseCorrespondentsDinner #WHCD #WHCA has been silent @margarettalev @jonkarl @OKnox need respond since they paid for her to speak #whcd2018”

“Absolute silence from #WHCA #WHCD2018 #WHCD board member @abc @jonkarl on tonight’s dinner speech”

Karl hasn’t directly commented but he retweeted a comment from NBC News’ Kelly O’Donnell that said, “The spirit of the event had always been jokes that singe but don’t burn. Reporters who work with her daily appreciate that @presssec was there.”

Spicer commented on a tweet by the New York Times’ Peter Baker that said, “Unfortunately, I don’t think we advanced the cause of journalism tonight.”

Spicer commented, “Any comments from the leadership of #WHCD2018 ?? @margarettalev @jonkarl @OKnox If it had not been one of your own you would be demanding answers but you sweep under the rug”

Meg Kinnard garnered attention recently for her reporting on the deadly prison riot in South Carolina and the proliferation of cellphones behind bars.
