WASHINGTON DC – The 2017 White House Correspondents Dinner was held Saturday, April 29 and focused on the First Amendment.
The White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) is an organization of journalists who cover the White House and the President of the United States.
The WHCA was founded on February 25, 1914, by journalists in response to an unfounded rumor that a Congressional committee would select which journalists could attend press conferences of President Woodrow Wilson.
The WHCA operates independently of the White House.
Among the more notable issues handled by the WHCA are the credentialing process, access to the President and physical conditions in the White House press briefing rooms.
Its most high-profile activity is the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which although President Donald Trump was not in attendance, is traditionally attended by the president and covered by the news media.
