Roy Wood Jr. on Hosting White House Correspondents’ Dinner: ‘It’s an Accountability Session’
“To me, that’s more important than the jokes, to take the opportunity to recognize the contribution of the media,” he said in an interview. “So I think in that regard, it’s a real honor. You don’t want to be the person that messes it up. You know, these are the people who decide what the news is and what it isn’t. That isn’t easy, and I have nothing but high praise for journalists in general.”
That said, Wood Jr. told TheWrap that no jokes or subjects are “off limits,” summing up his outlook thusly: “I don’t really think of this whole thing as some sort of big roast. I think it’s an accountability session.”
