After looking at about three minutes of the White House Press Association from the weekend, and the insult-comedy laid out by Michelle Wolf....I'd generally say that it was gutter-humor where 50-percent of an audience would typically walk out.
The problem is that a fair number of people from beyond the urbanized areas of the nation....will sit and watch the piece, then start shaking their heads. It's mostly insults. In terms of humor....it's lacking.
An affect on the 2019 association dinner? I'll go and take a humble guess that they have some problems in selling tickets next year, and roughly 25-percent of those who showed up this year.....won't be there next year.
Journalists who go and defend Wolf? Well...it's another reason why people don't watch your brand of news anymore.
