“The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah will headline this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association charity dinner:

One: What a boring choice:
Trevor Noah to perform as featured performer at the WH Correspondents Dinner. The most predictable comic on TV will make almost zero jokes about Biden, plenty about Trump. In a related story, The Daily Show can’t even draw 500,000 viewers these days, and gets trounced by Gutfeld.

Two: With all the outrage at Joe Rogan’s old tweets, the WHCA selected someone with even worse old tweets?

Great job, WHCA!

Oh, we don’t need a reminder. . .
REMINDER: Trevor Noah told disgustingly offensive racist ‘jokes’ about Aboriginal women for ‘entertainment’ and has never admitted they were racist nor – unlike @joerogan – apologised. https://t.co/EDkWvTKIr8

. . .but it looks like CNN’s Brian Stelter sure does:

In his newsletter announcing the selection, Stelter didn’t even mention any of Noah’s old jokes:
Is it too much to ask that they’re just a tiny bit consistent with their outrage?
We’ve corrected a typo in the headline. It’s “Brian” Stelter, not “Brain” Stelter.
