White House Dinner -- Hail to the Chef!

5/6/2009 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You've heard the state of journalism is code red -- newspapers and magazines folding, TV stations going broke...well there's something in the media that's recession proof -- the menu for the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.

We got hold of it and it's gonna be a pretty damn fancy shindig at the Hilton Washington this Saturday.

First course: Sopresso, Prosciutto, Reggiano & Brie Plate, Spiced Olives, Wild Watercress Salad, Warm Crostini Drizzled with Balsamic Dressing.

Entree: Porcini Dusted Petite Filet, Paired with Sun Dried Tomato Seared Escolar with Olive Tapenade, Mascarpone Polenta, Asparagus, Cipollini, Green and Yellow Squash, Porcini Mushroom Demi.

No dessert this year -- they're donating the money to a local charity.

Maybe if the news industry still performed to their unbiased standards that were long ago set by greats, like Walter Cronkite, they wouldn't be in this mess. When what they "report" on has the same unscrupulous standards as a website like TMZ (no offense, i love you guys) there really is no reason to turn to them for "news" and information. As a member of the news industry, I have never been more disappointed in my associates as I have been during this past election. I say F all those greedy corporate head honchos who cared mcuh more about the bottom line than doing their job. They are responsible for the undoing of the industry just as much as GREEDY bankers, lenders, business owners, etc. are responsible for the undoing of America.

Come on TMZ - no dessert this year as the savings on not serving that course ($23K) will be donated to a local charity! I can't believe you let the Washington Post scoop you on this! Plenty of desserts to be found at the various afterparites!
