World Net Daily Sues White House Correspondents’ Association

(Washington, D.C., April 13, 2010)., one of the most widely read and oldest internet publications has brought suit against the White House Correspondents’ Association, for shutting WND out of the upcoming dinner on May 1, 2010.
Larry Klayman, filed the suit for WND, under his law firm, and the complaint asks for over $10,000,000 in damages, plus a court order requiring the Association to allow WND to attend the event.
This dinner by the Association is the premier event in Washington, D.C., and it is where the media salutes the President of the United States annually. It is the equivalent of the “Academy Awards” for the media and political establishment.
This year, WND was among the first to order three tables for the event, as its White House correspondent, Les Kinsolving, is being feted by the staff and honored guests. However, based on apparent pressure put on the Association by the Obama White House, the Association gave WND only three seats, an insult to the publication.
Like Fox News, which was retaliated against earlier this year by the Obama White House, WND has been highly critical of the Obama White House.
To be effectively excluded from this event not only harms WND’s reputation, but damages its relations with the distinguished guests which it had already invited.
