US President Barack Obama and comedian Joel McHale share a laugh at the 2014 White House Correspondent's Association Gala at the Washington Hilton

The annual White House Correspondents Dinner was this past weekend, and Bob Garfield, co-host of On the Media and Mark Leibovich, chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine and author of This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral - plus plenty of valet parking! - in America's Gilded Capital (Blue Rider Press, 2013), decided to throw a "media ethics colloquy" instead. They talk about their scheme, and the coziness between the press and government in Washington DC.
