The Obamas Host First State Dinner

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

The hottest ticket in Washington D.C. tonight will be the White House state dinner honoring Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. It's the first such event for President and Mrs. Obama, who are putting their own stamp on the event. The guest list includes Hollywood directors Steven Spielberg and M. Night Shyamalan, and the menu will reportedly incorporate honey from the White House beehive. For more details on tonight's fête, we speak with Nia-Malika Henderson, White House reporter for Politico.

i thought i was listening to a "glenn beck" substitute, when headley's stand-in was questioning nia-malika about the dinner.

he was appalling. snarky, sarcastic, leading, presumptive and just plain unprofessional.

the takeaway is so unlike NPR. the hosts are often uninformed, arrogant, and prejudicial about the subject matter.

i keep listening - hoping they will be better, but yesterday was the worst i've heard.

dr. sandra mann, sad and disappointed.

How nice! While 1 in every 7 Americans goes to bed hungry, the President blows their money on stately dinners. Capitalism is a wonderful thing...if you're a Capitalist!
