The Very Honest Jake Tapper and Brian Stelter: The Main Point of the White House Correspondent's Dinner is Fundraising for Scholarships
Actual Financial Disclosures from the WHCA: No It's Not About Fundraising for Scholarships

The worst tribalist hacks in the "news" racket, and that's saying something:

But the black-tie dinner is not fundamentally about comedy acts or partisan politics -- it is a fundraiser and awards event that acknowledges the role of the free press and allows journalists to schmooze with sources and each other.

Let's check the actual facts, FakeTapper:

From Money magazine, April 29, 2016:

Lost in the levity may be a major reason the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner is supposedly held at all: to raise money for college scholarships.

As the event has grown in glitz and glamour, its role as a fundraiser to support aspiring journalists has faded.

The dinner, hosted by the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA), spent nearly 60% of its revenue on scholarships in 2009, according to an audit of its financial records by the Washingtonian. That dropped to just 26% in 2013, and then fell again in 2014 to 21.5%, the Washingtonian found.

This year, the association will award about $77,500 to 18 students, the WHCA announced last week. Most awards are worth $5,000--not an insignificant sum for an individual college student. But that's small change compared to the incredible amount of money spent on and around what's been dubbed D.C.'s Nerd Prom.

...

After being called out for its small-by-comparison scholarship activities, the association has defended itself by saying that it is not a scholarship organization. Instead, its primary mission is to advocate for openness and transparency at the White House by bargaining for access to events the press pool, for example. The WHCA also told the Washingtonian that it recently started putting some of its scholarship money aside in an endowment to fund future awards, which explains the decrease in current award dollars.

That very well may be, yet the association states on its homepage that proceeds of the dinner "go toward scholarships and awards that recognize aspiring and accomplished journalists."

And here's an update from the Washingtonian in April, 2017:

The organization spent $86,550 on scholarships in 2015--the exact same amount it spent in 2014. Put another way, the WHCA spent 23.6 percent of its revenue on scholarships in 2015. While that's up from the 21.5 percent in 2014, it's down dramatically from 2009, when the organization spent nearly 60 percent of its total revenue on scholarships.

Another update from Breitbart, May 2018:

At just 12.9 percent of its estimated revenue, the WHCA's 2016 scholarship payout was down from the 21.5 percent spent in 2014, which was also down from 26 percent in 2013 and nearly 60 percent in 2009, according to the Washingtonian.

...

In a statement on its website, the WHCA says it will give $134,500 to students this year. So far, 26 recipients have received $112,000. While additional details about the WHCA's 2018 finances are, for now, unavailable, some reports estimate attendance this year was around 3,000. At $300 a seat, and thus, an approximate revenue of $900,000, an estimate for the association's scholarship payout in 2018 would be roughly 15 percent.

The Columbia Journalism Review reported last year that the WHCA defended its paltry spending on the "scholarships" it promoted itself as collecting money for by dismissing that boast as "old language:"

When asked if the focus on the dinner was the student scholarships, Thomma says the website’s description was "old language": "It has to be absolutely clear: the annual dinner raises money for all of our expenses. It finances not just the the scholarships but also our operating expenses."

The "Nerd Prom" is indeed about fundraising -- but primarily the fundraising for itself, for the WHCA's expenses, which includes, centrally, the big expensive party it throws itself every year.

Now that Fake Tapper's recollection has been refreshed, would this unbiased, fact-based reporter like to revise his claim that the WHCA isn't "fundamentally" about a swank party and partisan attacks but rather about fundraising?

The fundraising is "fundamentally" for a swank party and partisan attacks, with a small amount of tithing to scholarships so that people can pretend they're doing something noble while they're ejaculating validation on each other's backs.

That was wartime, when 500000 "workers" were "employed full time" in Viet Nam! Trump's policies have accomplished something not seen since the U.S. was engaged in a major war. Btw, the UE rate was really low in 1944, too.

They spent all their time flirting with this bunch of frat boy looking douchebags at the nearby table. The food was meh and cost a ton. The seats were uncomfortable, the place was loud as hell. Completely unrewarding experience.

Years ago, this local small convenience store/gas station owner that was friend of mine almost started charging for bags for purchases less than some amount.

He was getting pissed. As he explained there are some people who fight the man by demanding bags for anything, no matter how small. They would buy a 20oz drink and demand a bag. Buy a piece of candy and demand a bag.

Why? They believe they are always paying for a bag, and are being cheated if they don't get a bag.

He said some would demand the bag, then walk out, take the product out of the bag and throw the bag away in the trash as they walked out.

Posted by: Archer at April 24, 2019 04:23 PM (gmo/4)
-------------------------

The problem with those reusable bags is that people put stuff in them - like packages of meat oozing salmonella liquidy gloop - and then they don't wash the bags, and the next time they use that bag for something like produce, the produce becomes infected.

And sometimes the counter at the end of the conveyer belt at the grocery store gets infected too, as those bags are reused.

Here's the paper on the bag ban:

https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?
abstract_id=2196481

(remove line feed)

Abstract:

-------------------------------
Recently, many jurisdictions have implemented bans or imposed taxes upon plastic grocery bags on environmental grounds. San Francisco County was the first major US jurisdiction to enact such a regulation, implementing a ban in 2007. There is evidence, however, that reusable grocery bags, a common substitute for plastic bags, contain potentially harmful bacteria. We examine emergency room admissions related to these bacteria in the wake of the San Francisco ban. We find that ER visits spiked when the ban went into effect. Relative to other counties, ER admissions increase by at least one fourth, and deaths exhibit a similar increase.
------------------------------------------------------

I think they conclude there was an increase of 5.5 food poisoning deaths per year attributable to the plastic bag ban.

382 "...another study he hopes to publish soon looking at how pathogens spread through grocery stores with the help of reusable bags. The study, conducted at a central California grocery store in early 2013, involved spraying bags with a bacteria not harmful to humans but transported in a similar way to norovirus, a leading cause of gastrointestinal disease linked to more than 19 million illnesses each year in the United States.

The tracer bacteria was detected in high concentrations on shopping carts, at the checkout counter and on food items shoppers had touched but kept on the shelf.

Sinclair said the contamination cycle often began right after shoppers entered the store and placed their bags in the bottom or the baby carrier of a shopping cart, two places notorious for germs.


"The baby carrier portion of the grocery cart is the most contaminated public surface you ever come in contact with," he said.

IIRC, shopping carts have the highest fecal contamination of all such things tested.

You know which room in the typical house has the most fecal contamination? You'd guess the bathroom. Wrong. It has the least.

What has the most? The kitchen.

423 The tracer bacteria was detected in high concentrations on shopping carts, at the checkout counter and on food items shoppers had touched but kept on the shelf.

Sinclair said the contamination cycle often began right after shoppers entered the store and placed their bags in the bottom or the baby carrier of a shopping cart, two places notorious for germs.


"The baby carrier portion of the grocery cart is the most contaminated public surface you ever come in contact with," he said.

Where do y'all place your produce (the one food item not normally cooked) in the shopping cart?

And to think, I used to roll my eyes at my grandmother washing not just her vegetables and fruit when she brough them home from the store, but also washing off milk cartons, egg crates, etc. before putting those items in the refrigerator.

Posted by: Some Guy in Wisconsin

I really don't think that Ohio is so much of a swing state anymore. It will go for Trump.

Michigan, PA, Wisconsin and maybe Minnesota, now.

And who knows about Florida.

Not to mention Virginia and North Carolina.

New Mexico and Colorado could move back towards Trump this cycle too.

431 One of many things I've never seen a good answer to from the "OMG GLOBAL INCINERATION WE'RE GONNA DIE" crowd:

There is a Viking dairy farm in Greenland that has recently emerged from the ice. Yes, this is evidence that the climate has warmed somewhat, BUT... what was it like when the dairy farm was in operation? Cows don't graze on ice, dudes. What that means is that there was ice-free pasture there, and not millennia ago, but in historical times. Given that part of the farm is STILL under the ice, that means that even now, it is still not as warm as it was when the Vikings lived there.

Warmest temperatures in forty-eleven billionjillion years, my ass.

It's great entertainment to read the fecal contamination studies. Shit is everywhere. In the air. I remember one study found the largest component of airborne fecal contamination was dog shit in urban areas.

Stay away from raccoon shit. That shit can cause something, I forget the name of it.

A few years ago, I discovered some raccoons had been nesting up in the attic of one the sheds here and had left piles of raccoon shit up there.

Raccoon shit can contain Bayliscacaris procyonis, known as raccoon roundworm.
