Radio and television correspondents gathered for their annual dinner featuring tongue-in-cheek humor about current events and press coverage of politics.

Vice President Cheney paid tribute to the late Pope John Paul II in remarks made on behalf of the president who was unable to speak at the dinner in order to attend the official funeral mass in Rome. 

The traditional entertainment was provided by comedian Lewis Black who commented on his experiences as a native Washingtonian and the current state of partisan politics.

The David Bloom Award for enterprise reporting was presented by the late Mr. Bloom’s brothers to ABC’s “Nightline” for its reporting on the rehabilitation of Iraq War veterans.

Following the official program, C-SPAN cameras showed scenes of the attendees informally greeting one another. close
