At WHCA Dinner, Biden Calls for Release of Journalist Evan Gershkovich and Others Detainees

From a Wall Street Journal story by John McCormick headlined “Biden Calls for Release of Jailed Journalist Evan Gershkovich, Other Detainees”:

President Biden and others at an annual Washington dinner called for the release of jailed Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich in Russia during a gathering that brought together members of the media, government officials and celebrities to celebrate press freedom.

Mr. Biden met privately with Mr. Gershkovich’s family, who attended the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner as Journal guests, as he arrived for Saturday’s black-tie gala and recognized them again in his remarks.
