I wanted to share with you guys, if you weren’t watching it, a video shown during the White House Correspondents Dinner last night. The History Channel produced it about the history of the Correspondents Association and its importance to the American people. The video begins at about 7:00 minutes and continues until18:12 (yes, it’s a little long, but totally worth it.)
I thought it was a nice reminder that journalists perform extremely important tasks for the people.
(I couldn’t find a clip of just that history, so I’ve embedded CSPAN’s entire video of the dinner.)
