The annual White House Correspondents' Dinner is losing a bit of its luster. Time Inc., which owns Time and People magazines, says it will not host its usual party before the event.
The organization joins a growing list of media outlets that have canceled or decided not to have parties the weekend of the correspondents' dinner.
President Donald Trump himself says he won't attend.
He'll be the first president since Jimmy Carter to completely skip the event.
President Ronald Reagan did not attend the correspondents' dinner in 1981 because he was hospitalized after an assassination attempt; instead, he sent a video message.
The WHCA dinner, commonly called "Nerd Prom," is scheduled for April 29 and raises scholarship money for journalism students.
