Christmas for White House Correspondents

“At the same time, I find it so strange. The jokes that are funny are the ones that are true. And this joke about Fox News — same as other jokes about Fox News from previous correspondent’s dinners — are all about its extreme bias, horrible reporting, and so on. And everyone laughs at them. Everyone always laughs. It’s like every single person in this room filled with people who control the media are totally aware of how seriously messed up Fox News is, and they get to laugh about it one night a year, but then they have to go back to pretending not to notice the rest of the time.”
