‘Hello? Gosnell?’: Small group of protestors crashes media’s ‘nerd prom’


Can’t the press have one night off from asking the tough questions? They’re just trying to have one weekend of fun with the president and some Hollywood celebrities and raise some money for journalism scholarships, but someone has to be a wet blanket, right?

Even some Obama supporters aren’t happy with the job the press has been doing and support Tom Brokaw’s decision to stay home this year.

Forgive me, Saint @tombrokaw, but @lindsaylohan‘s misdemeanors are far less consequential than an inept press. (1/2). #WHCD #tombrokaw
