Fox News Invited Sarah Palin To White House Correspondents Dinner

Reported by Ellen - May 8, 2009 -

John Amato, at Crooks and Liars, got the answer to the question I'd been wondering about: why was Sarah Palin going to the White House Correspondents Dinner (before she canceled, due to flooding in her state)? It turns out she was invited by Fox News. Given that the event, as MSNBC described it, is "THE event for all the A-Lister's in Washington." It's hard not to see this as a deliberate effort by Fox to boost her political profile, especially given her sagging poll numbers. Even worse, AP neglected to report Fox's invitation.

So how many Democrats did the "fair and balanced" network invite to the dinner?
