While we wait for the dinner to start CSPAN is covering the other parties that surround the White House Correspondents' Dinner which is sounding more and more like Washington's version of an awards show. 

Tom Brokaw complained about how anyone watching on TV would be confounded how any of the celebrities and entertainment professionals have anything to do with the actual men and women who cover the White House, and who were originally supposed to be represented at this dinner.
