New Yorker, Vanity Fair pull out of White House Correspondents' Dinner parties

The White House Correspondents' Dinner is taking place despite President Trump's constant attacks on the media, but The New Yorker and Vanity Fair are pulling out, according to The New York Times.

The New Yorker will cancel it's annual kickoff party, magazine spokeswoman Natalie Raabe told the Times. In addition, Vanity Fair will not co-sponsor the afterparty, which is typically among the hottest tickets in town and packed with celebrities.

Vanity Fair editor and longtime Trump rival Graydon Carter said, "Trump," when asked why he will spend the weekend fishing instead of hosting the party, the Times reported.

TheWrap previously reported that the annual dinner would go on despite Trump's on-going beef with the media.

"We've received some queries about the 2017 White House Correspondents' Dinner, which will be the first since the new administration took office," White House Correspondents' Association President Jeff Mason wrote to members in a Thursday email obtained by TheWrap. "The White House Correspondents' Association will hold its annual dinner on April 29 at the Washington Hilton."

The organization has not yet announced a host for the annual event, which draws top TV and print news reporters as well as Hollywood celebrities. In recent years, the so-called "nerd prom" has become a showcase and lightning rod for pointed political satire for a rotating line-up of comedians.

Trump and members of his team have been increasingly combative with members of the press, referring to CNN as "fake news" and labeling mainstream media "the opposition party." And Trump himself has been outspoken about political satire about his campaign and presidency, particularly on NBC's "Saturday Night Live."

It is unclear if Trump will attend the event. A White House spokesperson did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.
