Relationships between politicians and the media who cover them are often fraught, but on Tuesday, Sept. 26 at the National Press Club fun and friendly competition will prevail as lawmakers and reporters compete in the uproariously entertaining Press vs. Politicians Spelling Bee.
Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) will return this year hoping to reclaim his 2015 championship title against fellow lawmakers and an intensely competitive Washington press corps that is defending its 2016 victory, the first-ever in the history of the event.
Proceeds from the event support the activities of the Club’s nonprofit Journalism Institute, which defends press freedom worldwide, provides training for news professionals, and scholarships for the next generation of journalists.
