Washington Post Cancels Reception Before WHCA Dinner

From a story on axios.com by Erin Doherty and Shawna Chen headlined “WaPo cancels reception before WHCA dinner over COVID”:

The Washington Post is cancelling its reception before the White House Correspondents’ Dinner due to “an increase in COVID-19 transmission,” the newspaper said in an internal memo on Tuesday.

Driving the news: “We will donate what we would have spent on the reception to Reporters Without Borders to support the work they’re doing for reporters covering the war in Ukraine,” publisher Fred Ryan and editor Sally Buzbee wrote.
