If you’re the White House Correspondent’s Dinner you know you’ve really screwed up when members of the media are calling you out for the crap show you just put on.
Like this serious truth-explosion from the AP’s 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.

Absolutely spot freakin’ on.
Most Americans won't care one bit about the #WHCD. But the ones who do will blame you and every other reporter who's not part of the DC media circle jerk, even if you don't deserve it. It was an unmitigated disaster for #journalism, the absolute wrong signal at the wrong time.

For months (years?) traditional media has been whining that the Right calls them fake news and treats them as their enemy. What they fail to realize is the reason people treat them this way is their own doing … look at how they behaved during their ‘dinner.’ Clapping at mean girl Michelle Wolf for insulting Sarah Sanders’ appearance? Tacky folks.
Guess how Lefties reacted to Meg’s tweet.
The president is why people in red states don’t trust the media. He literally holds rallies in red states and talks about how awful the media is, and the crowd joins in. Hell he did it TONIGHT! This happened over a span of 2 years, not 20 minutes.

These people seriously need a hobby.
Maybe you should just focus on calling out the lies from this administration and stop worrying about how those who rely on Fox News view you.

Maybe you should just report what we tell you to.
Your job is to report facts. Not worry if people in red states like you. The free press is not a popularity contest. It is a check on those in power on behalf of the American people. Do your job and stop whining.

We think folks missed her point entirely.
But what else is new?
You guys are partially responsible for this debacle. You gave Trump unlimited airtime all in the name of ratings. You held HRC to a higher standard but allowed Trump to run roughshod facts and norms–you still are. Therefore, it's part of your job.

Did this person really just blame the media for Hillary’s loss?
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.
What’s the difference? trump supporters don’t believe anything- not one thing- they hear from what they consider MSM. A comedian is not going to change that one way or another.

You know this gal is a hoot at birthday parties.
Trump & GOP did that. The fact that you blame it on tonight is why we don’t trust you. Red state Dem here .. watched the whole thing. The comedy was funny! The press making sure Sarah was ok was pathetic. Btw – trump was railing against the press at his hate rally tonight.

Yes, it’s the GOP’s fault the media is falling apart.
Please, do your job and don’t critique comedians. You created this shitstorm.

Don’t have an opinion … cute.
And they STILL wonder why Trump won.
