Who is White House Correspondents' Association?

The White House Correspondents' Association is an organization of journalists who cover the White House and the President of the United States. The WHCA was founded on Feb 25, 1914 by journalists in response to an unfounded rumor that a Congressional committee would select which journalists could attend press conferences of President Woodrow Wilson.

The WHCA operates independently of the White House. Among the more notable issues handled by the WHCA are the credentialing process, access to the President and physical conditions in the White House press briefing rooms.
